Dividend Income Update - May 2021


The month of May 2021 is another month of dividend income landing in my accounts. Recently, I switched my pay yourself first model once again.   The interest on debt is 7.16% 5.66% plus the insurance on the debt. The decrease in the interest rate is a result of emergency rate cuts by the Bank of Canada over the COVID19 pandemic.  

Starting the beginning of January 2021.  I am paying myself 30%.  This will consist of 15% to investing, 12% to debt, and 3% to savings.   I am treating paying debt as paying myself first, to insure I am actually doing it. If I try to pay down debt after spending money on expenses, I might not get the debt paid off in a reasonable time.  I am hoping I can keep this up!

I will update my dividend income tab with the new amount. I will include my option premium income also. It is great to see money from passive income sources deposited into my brokerage account every single month.
