SR5    
Retiring Outside the United States

   More than 300,000 retired Americans live outside the country, in places such as Mexico, Costa Rica and Portugal. They go for several reasons: climate, a lower cost of living that translates into a higher standard of living, savings on medical expenses and the excitement of residing and traveling in a foreign country. Many relocate early in retirement, spend several years abroad and then return home.
   Sound interesting? Then you won't want to miss this informative primer on retiring abroad. We'll tell you how to determine if you'd be happy living abroad, how to find the country and town that best suit your lifestyle and how to adjust to everyday life in a new country. We'll discuss retirement spots in Mexico and Central America, the Caribbean, Canada and southern Europe and provide sources for additional information you might need. Finally, we'll tell you the most common (and costly) mistakes you could make in the process of moving abroad and how to avoid them. $4.95

How to Get the Most Out of Social Security

   Whether retirement is a distant dream, just around the corner or even if you're already receiving benefits, we'll show you how to maximize your benefits and avoid the mistakes that can cost you thousands of dollars. $4.95
