Want a happy and easy retirement? Matt Badiali’s “Freedom Checks” may be the answer

There are all kinds of investment programs out there. One of them is described by a man named Matt Badiali. Badiali has promoted a program on behalf of the Lifetime Income Report known as “Freedom Checks”. These “Freedom Checks” are promoted as a type of investment that is more lucrative than CDs, stocks, or mutual funds, although they work more like dividends. Read this article at

Badiali claims that this investment has been promoted by presidents from Nixon all the way up to Trump as an investment that is used to keep the United States self-sufficient. In fact, Badiali learned of this investment while speaking to legendary oilman T. Boone Pickens. It is codified into law by a statute known as “Statute 26-F”. This statute brings to life an investment that is otherwise known as Master Limited Partnerships or MLPs. Master Limited Partnerships are publicly traded partnerships that are used to “pass through” investment profits to shareholders. Read more at Agora News about Freedom Checks.


These companies pass most of their profits on to their shareholders in order to avoid federal taxes. Companies such as oil and gas pipe lines as well as any publicly traded company that deals in commodities will utilize this type of arrangement. These “Freedom Checks” are also utilized by real estate investment trusts, or REITs.


Some examples of companies that will give out these “Freedom Checks” to their investors are companies such as SunCoke Energy Partners based out of San Diego, California, and the San Juan Basin Royalty Trust based out of Texas. When Badiali chooses companies, he looks for companies that have at least $1 billion of “in demand assets” available to them. Assets such as oil, natural gas, gold, silver, rare earth minerals and even intellectual properties would be considered. Essentially, anything that is both tangible and a raw material will be considered as a company to look into. The second rule is that this company must have consistent and increasing payments given to their stakeholders. The third rule is that the company must have a track record of making a lot of money for their investors. And the last rule, the company must have very good financials. Badiali looks at cash flow, debt structure and many other factors to determine what companies to recommend to his readers that will pay out these “Freedom Checks”. And customers purchase his newsletters in the hopes of finding the next big play to strengthen their long term investment strategy.
