Recently the American Congress and White House passed the bill supporting President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID relief package. Eligible individuals will each receive a base amount of $1,400 to help them through the pandemic.
While some will use the money to pay bills or fund their emergency funds, others will invest either a portion of or the full amount.
It can be a great option to invest your stimulus check, as you get the opportunity to build wealth effortlessly. If you end up taking this path, make sure that you leave your investments alone for a couple of years to benefit from compound interest.
Where to Invest?
If you watched the video of How to Invest Your $1,400 Stimulus Check or Any Check, you would know that we gave examples for Index funds (S&P 500), buying stock directly from a company, and buying cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.
There are many other ways to invest your money, such as:
- Investing in your 401(k) for retirement
- Dividend funds
- Real estate
No matter which method you choose, letting your money work for you through compound interest and growth is the best way to take care of your financial future.
Set a goal for yourself and take advantage of portfolio diversification. Remember that investing $1,400, or even just a portion of it, means that you’re willing to risk losing it, as we can’t always rely on the stock market or any other investment for that matter. But at the same time, you can’t gain anything if you don’t take any risks.
Whatever you choose to do with your stimulus check, choose wisely!
