Last Year, 173 of America's Biggest Companies Paid Out Billions
"Section 1059 Plans"
Companies now hand out these little-known lump-sum cash payments that are up to 38 times bigger than the regular quarterly dividends they pay!
And thousands of investors cashed these checks or had the payments deposited directly into their brokerage accounts.
For example, last year, Loretta* collected Section 1059 Plan payments totaling $151,206 — a rough average of $12,600 per month.
Another example is Garrett*, a businessman.
His lump-sum payment last year was a whopping $94,240.
That could be enough to pay his mortgage for several years in a row!
And then there's Patrick*. He collected the equivalent of $4,000 per month from his Section 1059 Plan.
Now, there is very little information about Section 1059 Plans on the Internet.
And the government doesn't help you find out about them, either.
But for income investors, these cash payments could provide a significant boost to their portfolios.
That's because the amount of money companies are paying out from Section 1059 Plans keeps getting bigger and bigger.

What Is Income Investors?
Income Investors is dedicated to delivering timely, trusted and actionable financial news and information to dividend investors. Our mission is to help readers earn higher investment yields and better returns from their portfolios.
Our philosophy is straightforward:
- We believe in simple.If you want to own hot tech stocks, Income Investors isn’t for you. But if you prefer commonsense investing, then you’ll like our approach just fine. Investors adore sexy startups and biotech plays. But over the long term, the best stocks tend to be simple businesses that produce reliable profits that they pay out to shareholders.
- We believe in dividends.For ordinary investors, dividends may be the best way to build wealth. Sure, we all like the extra money. But in addition to regular income, study after study has shown dividend stocks actually beat the market over the long haul. After all, what could be a better sign of a solid business than writing a check to shareholders?
- We believe in the future.Over the past century, American incomes have grown sevenfold. Think about everything that has happened during that time: the Great Depression…two world wars…asset bubbles…stock market crashes…and the list goes on. Yet through it all, our standard of living has marched higher. For 240 years, it has been a mistake to be betting against America. Now is not the time to start.

If you’re interested in dependable income, Gaurav believes there’s one key term you need to know: “Global Dividend Growers” (GDGs). GDGs are some of the biggest, most profitable companies in the world. Their entrenched position translates into steady revenues, thick profit margins, and robust cash flows. This allows them to produce market-beating returns and grow oversized dividends year after year.
These stocks are the “Ivy League Elites” of the market. Dozens of the companies on this list have paid rising dividends for decades, even through the financial crisis of 2008. Many long-time stockholders are collecting triple-digit yields based on the price of their original purchases.
Gaurav holds a BA in Business Economics from York University. Prior to joining Income Investors, he worked as a trader for TD Bank and in private wealth management for Canaccord Genuity.
