My July investment income rose to $29.44 from $27.69 the month before. This is pretty good since I was only able to contribute $100 to my Roth IRA. Most of the gain from the mutual fund in my Roth IRA rebounding a little and receiving the employer match on my small 401k. Since I’m quitting my job I won’t have a 401k much longer. I plan to do a rollover to my Roth IRA. The nice thing about my 401k is that my contributions and the employer match are immediately 100% vested.
Disclaimer: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.
