Global Expat Forum: Location based on finances NOT wants:

Hi Forum, I have posted in specific country forums, trying to sort through finances, situations and what best suits my individual scenario. So, 1st thing... The About Me. I am 55 y.o, live in the Northeast of U.S.A. Winters are really starting to take their toll on me. So I see a warmer climate calling me... return to see some snow and leave LOL. My Work: I have a great job (Education / State of Massachusetts). Great paying job.... But of late I'm starting to feel that the stress is outweighing the pay. If I was to walk out the door (Work) right now... I am eligible for a retirement. So here's my Scenario State Retirement - $1,500.00 monthly. Sale of Residence - $300,000 - $400,000. My personal IRA (don't see that being touched yet). Savings / Checking / Investments - varied due to paying bills, Misc & performance. So, My question comes down to this. If the above scenario was you. Where would you choose & why? Thank You Alan

Ecuador: Ecuador Newbie Forum Post:

I've read a lot of interesting & Informative post from people on here. But, I thought I'd try posting something a little unique..... I'd like to have the post(s) from Newbies.... Like Me.... Have our own little thread of the Who... What... When... Why & How. Possibly have a stronger bond with each other (From being so New to the idea of the Expat experience). This post isn't intended to be a negative against anyone that is already experiencing being an Expat. I just thought it be a cool idea to connect with potential Expats.... That are at square 1..... Like myself. Look forward to hearing what is on your mind and..... Hopefully, make some friendships along the way. Alan

Ecuador: Curious about Ecuador Expense Frequency compared to U.S:

Dear Forum, Having a budget that Works.... And having a budget that you know where your $$$ goes... To me, Is 2 different things. So, my Question / Scenario is this. My Current Scenario. Quarterly - House Taxes ($$$). :( Monthly - Water & Electric ($). Monthly - Home Insurance - ($$). Not including personal items (Food, Necessities....). Was wondering if Ecuador's Property based expenses are similar to the U.S. or Is it a totally different beast from the U.S (advantages / disadvantages)? Thank You. Alan

Malaysia: Researching Malaysia for retirement:

Hi Forum, My question has probably been heard 1000's of times over on here. But here's my scenario. I live in the northeast portion of the USA (Massachusetts to be exact) I work for the state of Massachusetts (education). I'm currently 55 and don't see me retiring for a minimal of 5 yrs (puts me at 60 y.o). Barring any changes... My calculations would be roughly $25K +/- from my State retirement (excluding anything else I have in place aka My retirement, savings, sale of home). Thanks Alan

Ecuador Welcome Forum: Research based on my Figures:

Hi Forum, My question has probably been heard 1000's of times over on here. But here's my scenario. I live in the northeast portion of the USA (Massachusetts to be exact) I work for the state of Massachusetts (education). I'm currently 55 and don't see me retiring for a minimal of 5 yrs (puts me at 60 y.o). Barring any changes... My calculations would be roughly $25K +/- from my State retirement (excluding anything else I have in place aka My retirement, savings, sale of home). Do these figures work for Ecuador? Thanks Alan
