I have been contributing to my 401k with a 5% company match for my entire working career. I started my Roth IRA and also 2 after tax accounts with Ameritrade and TradeKing last year and I am beginning to invest in mostly dividend paying stock and some ETFs for the long term. My goal is to invest now and have a steady income stream for when retirement comes. I have about 25 years until 60 and I do not want to count on social security to for my retirement.
