Make two decisions to launch the “Accumulation” phase, one decision when you are ready to retire; i.e. the “Withdrawal” phase. That’s it; no more decisions.
You just set the plan in action and forget about making any more investment decisions for the rest of your life. Real simple and much more likely to be carried out because of its simplicity.
- Make the decision to open an account (Roth, 401K, Brokerage) account at Sharebuilder.com.
- Make the decision to setup your Sharebuilder account to withdraw $IMAX* from your checking account each month. Use the $IMAX dollars to purchase as many shares of
DIA (an index fund that tracks the DJIA) as $IMAX will buy.
- Upon reaching retirement age, set up your Sharebuilder account to send you at least $MIN** or more up to $WMAX*** each month from your considerable retirement account with little chance of running out of money. Decision is what is the value of $MIN?
THAT’S IT! That is The Plan!

There is a lot of expensive advice out there for you to purchase. It is contrary to The Plan. I am willing to bet my eternal clear conscience that followers of this plan will be better off 47 years from now than if they had followed any other plan.
* $IMAX = the maximum amount you can muster each month for Investing in your retirement account; should be at least $250 per month.
** $MIN = the minimum amount withdrawn monthly from your Sharebuilder account. See Withdrawal Strategy to learn how to determine this minimum amount. Withdrawing a fixed percent, say 5% may not give you sufficient income to meet your budget requirements. $MIN is the minimum you need to withdraw to maintain your lifestyle.
***$WMAX = the maximum amount Withdrawn monthly from your Sharebuilder account. In a booming market withdrawing a fixed percent, say 5% may be imprudent for the long run as 5% may be much more than you need in a single year.
