Historical Background
The concept of calculating age factors has gained importance with the rise of retirement planning and the need to understand how much time individuals have to prepare for retirement.
Calculation Formula
The Age Factor is calculated using the following formula:
\[ \text{Age Factor (\%)} = \left( \frac{\text{Retirement Age}  \text{Current Age}}{\text{Current Age}} \right) \times 100 \]
Example Calculation
If someone is currently 40 years old and plans to retire at 65, the Age Factor is calculated as:
\[ \text{Age Factor} = \left( \frac{65  40}{40} \right) \times 100 = 62.5\% \]
This means their age will increase by 62.5% by the time of retirement.
