investment vehicle
« on: August 25, 2017, 12:17:01 PM »
Hello!  I'm new to MMM & the term FIRE, but have been working towards early retirement for a while.  I just thought I was cool and original.  Little did I know there was a whole world of people wanting the same thing.  Glad I found you.

I currently have my money invested via 401k, IRA, straight stocks as well as some real estate money coming in.  Now that y'all have properly motivated me, (and I thank you)  I'm about to "kick it up a notch" but I had a question.

What vehicle are y'all using for your investments?  Are y'all doing it within an IRA of some sort with the intention of doing SEPP before you are 59 1/2.  What advice can you give me?

I have more invested in non-retirement vehicles through Vanguard, but I also have a 401K style plan and Roth IRA, so I'm good with everything as it is.  SS will kick in about a decade into retirement.

I think you'll find people here using all of the above. IRAs, Roth IRAs, 401(k)s, HSAs, 457(b)s, taxable accounts, real estate, etc.
