Kathleen Peddicord wrote a book "How to Retire Overseas" where she talks about some of the research going into the best places to spend your twilight years.

Top 3 Takeaways:

  • "The average social security check right now for an American is about $1,500 a month. And that's enough budget to live well in a lot of places."

  • "The best place to retire overseas in 2022 is a town called Comporta on the coast of Portugal, about an hour and a half outside Lisbon"
  • The cost of healthcare can be 5-10x cheaper in other countries with even higher quality
