7 Things To Consider Before Retiring Overseas

7 Things To Consider Before Retiring Overseas | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

You can find lots of information and articles on the countries and cities you're interested in retiring to at websites like International LivingEscape Artist and AngloINFO. International Living even offers a short quiz you can take to help you discover your ideal overseas retirement location. There are also some great books on this topic like "How to Retire Overseas: Everything You Need to Know to Live Well (for Less) Abroad" by Kathleen Peddicord, and "Retirement Without Borders" by Barry Golson. These books and others like it are available in book stores nationwide or online atamazon.com. Or, check with your local public library.

Another good tip is to talk or network with some expatriates who have already made the move you're thinking about making. They can give you tips and suggestions, as well as the advantages and disadvantages and day-to-day reality of living in a particular country. Some popular sites to finding expat resources are expatexchange.com and expatforum.com. Here are some other areas you need to investigate.

Cost of living: Retiring abroad used to be seen as a surefire way to live beyond your means, and for some countries it still is. But the U.S. dollar isn't what it used to be, so your money may not stretch as far as you think. See numbeo.com and xpatulator.com for a country-by-country cost of living comparison.

Safety and stability: The U.S. State Department offers background notes or fact sheets on 200 countries providing information about the land, people, history, government, political conditions, economy and foreign relations.

Weather: Use worldclimate.com to get weather information on just about every significant city in the world.

Taxes: No matter what foreign country you decide to retire in, as long as you're a U.S. citizen you still have to pay U.S. taxes. For details see the IRS publication 54, "Tax Guide for U.S. Citizens and Resident Aliens Abroad."

Health care: Medicare does not cover retirees outside the U.S., so you'll need to contact theembassy or consulate of your destination country to see how you can be covered as a foreign resident. Many countries provide government-sponsored health care that's inexpensive, accessible and just as good as what you get in the states, or you may want to buy a policy. Outfits like the Association of Americans Resident OverseasApril Medibroker and Bupa Internationaloffer or broker affordable health plans.

Social Security: This is the one area you don't need to worry about. You can receive your monthly Social Security benefits almost anywhere you live around the world. Your benefits can be deposited into your bank account either in the U.S. or in your new home country - there are some exceptions. To learn more, see ssa.gov/pubs/10137.pdf.

Test run: Once you settle on a destination, be sure you visit multiple times during different seasons to see whether you can envision yourself living there and not just exploring the place as a tourist. If you like what you see but aren't sure where to live, rent before you buy to be certain you're happy with your choice.

Le Marche Among The Top Regions For Retirement In Italy | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Italy has 20 regions and a wide range of climates from Alpine to hot and sunny. Each offers a wealth of amenities and activities, regional food and wine, even dialects. Speaking of which, if you decide to settle in Italy, you will need to learn at least some Italian to be comfortable...

Le Marche. This mountainous region of hill towns, farms and Adriatic Sea beaches is in central Italy. According to the AARP, renting a home in La Marche can run anywhere from $600 in the countryside to $1500 a month to live on the 100 miles of Adriatic coastline. Looking to buy? You might be able to find a home for approximately $300,000 on or close to the water, in a town like Senigallia or Potenza Picena – or in one of the medieval towns that dot the hilly, green countryside, such as Fermo.
The port city of Ancona is the region’s capital. If you settle there, you will find some six metro buses, plus taxi companies to  help you get around. Some say this is the next “hot” area for expats given its affordability. [...]

8 Factors To Consider Before Relocating In Retirement

8 Factors To Consider Before Relocating In Retirement | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Retirement can be a time to sit back and settle into a place you already know well. With your newfound free time you can better enjoy the already familiar surroundings of your neighborhood. Retirement gives you an opportunity to really savor what you have, and appreciate all of the little things that you might have taken for granted. If you have all you want in your current location, what could be better?

But some people see retirement as an excellent opportunity to try something new. They long to explore new things and experience different surroundings. After spending a significant portion of their lives in the same place, retirement offers the opportunity to live somewhere else. Perhaps you could move somewhere with four clearly-defined seasons that each bring something new. Or, if you have had it with the snow, you could find a place with moderate temperatures where the sun always shines. If thoughts of a change in latitude make you happy, retirement is your chance to do it.

When selecting a new place to retire, here are some things to look for:

  • Public transportation. What kind of bus and train coverage can you expect? Also take a look at the services available specifically for senior citizens. You’ll need access to an airport if you plan to travel in retirement. Efficient public transport can reduce your need to deal with traffic or other driving challenges.
  • Senior-friendly design of your home. Minor adjustments to your home can make life easier and safer as you age. Moving to a new location can allow you to seek a new house with senior-friendly features or add them before you move in. Consider adding good lighting inside and out to see where you are going, cabinets and doors with easy to manage handles and knobs, and kitchen cabinets that are not too high or too deep. Also, take a look at single story houses and homes with fewer steps.
  • The weather. Many retirees move to warmer climates where they can permanently avoid snow, but some people also like to avoid extreme heat. Remember to consult with your spouse about his or her weather preferences. You will need to find a place with an average temperature and conditions that both of you are comfortable with.
  • The cost. If you can sell your current home and move to a place that costs significantly less, relocating in retirement can make financial sense. But if you must go from no mortgage or small payments into a new long-term mortgage you’ll need to carefully calculate the financial impact. A different climate may seasonally spike your utility and electric bill, so don’t be taken by surprise. And don’t forget to consider increases in property taxes and insurance that can come with a new purchase.
  • Proximity to family and friends. Moving to another state or foreign country can be exhilarating, but it also puts a lot of space between you and your family. And with the added distance, some family members may not be able or inclined to visit as much. Proximity to family and friends should be an important consideration in your plans to relocate.
  • Availability of medical facilities. Check out the local hospitals and health facilities for both quality and proximity to your home. It can also be helpful to research retirement communities in the area in case you require such services at a later date.
  • Local attractions. As you explore your new locale, look for special places that you might hope to frequent. Perhaps you will find a candidate for a favorite restaurant within walking distance or an intimate coffee shop where you can start the day with a steaming cup and a fresh croissant. Also consider how close you are to natural beauty such as oceans, mountains, and forests. Since you have the option to choose where you move, this is your chance to get close to as many attractions and scenic points of interest as you can.
  • Local populace. Will you be among the oldest members of the community, or will you find fellow seniors in sufficient numbers? In could be easier to connect with people who grew up in similar times and share similar interests. Consider relocating near a college or university, which will often bring speakers and concerts into town. A little variety in the local population is a good thing, but you don’t want to be the only senior in the town.
