Debt Freedom to Financially Free Calculator

Financial Freedom Calculator Sign

This calculator will calculate how long it will take to become financially free after becoming debt-free.

The idea behind this calculator is that once you manage to pay off all of your debts, including your mortgage, you will then be able to start investing the total of your freed-up debt payments, plus any additional funds you were applying to your debt repayment plan.

This is where you turn the tables on corporations who've been getting rich off of your interest payments. Instead of you being their investment vehicle, they now become your investment vehicles!

But before you use this calculator, you will first need to calculate your total debt payments and estimated debt freedom date. Both of these figures can be arrived at by using one of the following calculators:

In both cases, be sure to include your mortgage in your repayment plan to get the maximum effect.

Help and Tools

Adjust Calculator Width:

Move the slider to left and right to adjust the calculator width. Note that the Help and Tools panel will be hidden when the calculator is too wide to fit both on the screen. Moving the slider to the left will bring the instructions and tools panel back into view.

Also note that some calculators will reformat to accommodate the screen size as you make the calculator wider or narrower. If the calculator is narrow, columns of entry rows will be converted to a vertical entry form, whereas a wider calculator will display columns of entry rows, and the entry fields will be smaller in size ... since they will not need to be "thumb friendly".

Show/Hide Popup Keypads:

Select Show or Hide to show or hide the popup keypad icons located next to numeric entry fields. These are generally only needed for mobile devices that don't have decimal points in their numeric keypads. So if you are on a desktop, you may find the calculator to be more user-friendly and less cluttered without them.

Stick/Unstick Tools:

Select Stick or Unstick to stick or unstick the help and tools panel. Selecting "Stick" will keep the panel in view while scrolling the calculator vertically. If you find that annoying, select "Unstick" to keep the panel in a stationary position.

If the tools panel becomes "Unstuck" on its own, try clicking "Unstick" and then "Stick" to re-stick the panel.
