Affordable Baby Boomer
Boomers are Stretching their Income by Retiring Abroad
With our busted economy and increasing costs, it is difficult for the typical Baby Boomer to comfortably retire in the United States unless you have a monthly guaranteed income of several thousand dollars. But what if you could retire to an area where a relaxing lifestyle can be enjoyed for just $1,200 monthly, or you can live very well (with maids and gardeners) for, say, $2,500 monthly? Interested?
Obviously, you probably won't find these places within the United States. Moving to another country where the cost of living is lower offers substantial benefits for those without a large financial nest egg. Life can be good...very good.
American enclaves often exist for those who are afraid of cultural shock and language barriers. Health insurance and medical facilities are good. Financial matters are easily handled. Internet and phone service are uninterrupted. Climate and scenery are outstanding. The recreational activities you enjoy are readily available. Safety is not a major concern - crime is typically less than in major U.S. cities. And you are just a plane ride away from family and friends in the United States.
But it takes an adventuresome personality to move abroad. And we advise not purchasing property until you have lived in your selected location for at least a year. There are a lot of considerations, but even on a low, fixed income it is possible to retire like royalty.
