20 Dividend Stocks to Fund 20 Years of Retirement
The traditional retirement wisdom used to be the "4% rule." You would withdraw 4% of your savings in the first year of retirement, followed by "pay raises" in each subsequent year to account for inflation. The idea? If you're invested in a mix of dividend stocks, bonds and even a few growth equities, your money should last across a 30-year retirement.

But today's world is different. Interest rates and bond yields have been driven into the ground, reducing future expected returns. Exacerbating the problem: Americans are living longer than ever before.

If you're wondering how to retire without facing the uncomfortable decision of what securities to sell, or questioning whether you are at risk of outliving your savings, wonder no more. You can lean on the cash from dividend stocks to fund a substantial portion of your retirement. Indeed, Simply Safe Dividends has even provided an in-depth guide about living on dividends in retirement.

Many companies in the market yield 4% or more. And if you rely on solid dividend stocks for that 4% annually, you won't have to worry as much about the market's unpredictable fluctuations. Better still, because you likely won't have to eat away at your nest egg as much, you'll have a better chance of leaving your heirs with a sizable portfolio when the time comes.

Here are 20 high-quality dividend stocks, yielding on average well above 4%, that should fund at least 20 years of retirement, if not more. Each has paid uninterrupted dividends for more than two decades, has a fundamentally secure payout and has the potential to collectively grow its dividends to protect investors' purchasing power over time.
