Retiring in Germany

Post New Topic

I need info on how to retire in Stuttgart area (Schonaich). We are choosing this are due to proximity and availability of doctors that take TRICARE. We don't want to become citizens yet, but need to know other ways we can live there without having US job that provides the SOFA. Can we get a residence permit based on retirement? Do we need proof of income? How much $$?
Proof of heath insurance?
Does anybody know if we can use the medical facilities at Patch Barracks or Landstuhl?
Can we live on an income of $3,500 USD per month?

Hello...Can you retire on 3,000€ per month? Depends on your life style, area you live in. Will you need a car ? It’s possible, but could be tight.
Good luck !

I agree.

In the French Countryside or Spain, and portions of Italy, 3,000 Euro is plenty of money a month. But in countries like Ireland, or Germany, it is very tight indeed.

€ 3000.- is enough to make a living provided this is after health care has been paid for. Stuttgart is one of the most expensive regions of Germany though, so you could afford a higher standard of living in cheaper areas. You´ll need to prove health insurance and about € 800 per month of income for a residence permit but as a US citizen you can stay for 90 days without it.

Thanks for your response. I know the Stuttgart area is expensive, and I am open to living anywhere else in Germany, though I prefer to Southern Germany. I just need to be where there is healthcare through Tricare. I figured the US bases would have that available. Does anybody know if there are any German doctors who take Tricare? I imagine that some near the Us bases would. Any recommendations on towns to live in?

you might try Kaiserslautern - there are multiple US military bases there. However, it is in western Germany. Gutes Gluck!
