Dividends & Income
This user currently has no profile.
I was born in 1957, and retired in Nov 2012 after 32 years in the telecom industry. We have 3 children, 30, 28, & 18. We are helping with the 18 year old's college. The retirement is being covered by a pension, a couple of annuities, some rental income, and investments. We are taking dividends from the after tax portfolio to supplement the pension, annuities, & rental income. Once I turn 59.5, we plan to start adding dividend income from my IRA/401K investments. And, after that, at some time yet to be determined, we will get another boost in revenue from Social Security.
The after tax portfolio we have is invested in higher yielding investments that have a track record of consistantly paying dividends,
but not so much of a record of dividend growth. The IRA/401K portfolios are invested more in securities that have a better dividend growth record than high yield. Reading the articles in SA has re-enforced the strategy we are using in retirement, and provided ideas about additional investments to improve our portfolios.
I enjoy fly fishing. I tie my own flies and build the occasional fly rod. I have a drift boat that I use on rivers with buddies to fly fish the western rivers. I also enjoy white water rafting, and have run several riverss out west, including the Colorado in the Grand Canyon (twice). My wife and I are preparing to spend a lot of time traveling. Our plans are to spend 4 to 6 months a year away from home. We have a few things to wrap up before those plans commence, but we are getting closer every day....
