Retiring abroad is a big decision. It means moving to another country and setting up your life in a new place, with different laws, customs, and cultures. There are so many benefits to retiring overseas retirement that it’s worth considering before making this major change.
What are the benefits of retiring abroad?
Retiring abroad has several benefits. Firstly, retiring abroad can be a fantastic way to experience a totally different lifestyle and culture from your own without all the upheaval and hassle of moving house and starting a new job in a foreign country. Secondly, the cost of living is much cheaper so money saved will go a lot further. Thirdly, you may be able to purchase that beachfront property or that apartment near the piazza.
How do I pay for living expenses while living abroad?
It is important for an individual to be able to facilitate their financial obligations while living or retiring in another country. Banks usually charge more than the market rates for money transfers, and this does not include other charges such as currency trading commissions and fees for deposits and withdrawals.
