My investment income for May came to $27.66. This is a very small increase from $27.50 for April. I didn’t contribute any money to my Roth IRA. I forgot to include my 401k last month or my income wouldn’t have gone up at all. My 401k is tiny right now. I contribute 6% of my pay but I only work two shifts a week and have a low wage so that doesn’t add up to much.
This is not my actual investment income. To get this figure I first add up my retirement accounts, emergency fund, and any other money I consider permanent savings. What the total of my savings would earn at 6% interest for a month is my monthly investment income.
