Greetings all. New to the board but have been around FIRE forums and what not for awhile. Question for the smart folks. My wife and I are both retired military as well and receive disability compensation along with our pension. I also receive SSDI for my disabilities. With our pensions we bring in 2X our monthly expenses. Our health care is covered for both of us through VA and our only child is covered through Tricare. We own our house. We paid off the mortgage early last year. We also have a rental property that cash flows ~$100 a month. My question is, what would you do with the extra income? We closed our TSPs to pay off the house and currently have not investments. I had thought about buying more rentals but dont want to deal with the ass pain of it all. I am thinking about just putting it into VTSAX every month and never touch it. Just let it ride and give to the boy when we pass. Thoughts? Thanks, BD

VTSAX is a fine choice.

Or spend more :)
