"The strategies and suggestions in this book are intended to give readers the knowledge and confidence they need to rebuild their lives abroad, ensuring that retirement is what it should be."

Economic turbulence and uncertainty about the future of social programs have, for many people, turned retirement into a dreaded punishment rather than a long-awaited reward for a lifetime of hard work. Not the case for Suzan Haskins and Dan Prescher, who have been living and working abroad for over 12 years. They know that retiring abroad makes it possible to secure a happy, healthy, affordable retirement, and in this book they provide all the details on how to make this dream a reality.

Around the world, expatriates are enjoying low costs of living, free or low-cost health care and a quality of life that matches or surpasses what they would be able to afford at home. In The International Living Guide to Retiring Overseas on a Budget, readers will learn countless true stories about people who have successfully relocated to places where their retirement money goes farther. These expats are saving thousands, sometimes tens of thousands, of dollars per year on insurance, medical, and housing expenses.

"We work hard our whole lives so that we can enjoy the finer things when we retire, but today more and more people are finding that the finer things simply aren’t in their budgets," says Haskins. "The strategies and suggestions in this book are intended to give readers the knowledge and confidence they need to rebuild their lives abroad, ensuring that retirement is what it should be."

Younger families can also benefit from The International Living Guide to Retiring Overseas on a Budget, which contains advice on expatriating with kids, overcoming language barriers, and researching foreign housing markets.

The authors have a neutral, informative writing style that clearly breaks down the pros and cons of retiring to the most desirable corners of Central America, South America, Europe, and Asia. Expatriation is not a decision to be taken lightly. Finding the right place for one's family, and thier budget is a complex—but, as the authors emphasize, not irreversible—choice. This book contains valuable information that will guide readers in the right direction when it comes time to finding a new, more retirement-friendly place to call home.
