“Whether you’re seriously considering or just getting started, it is an opportune time to further explore retiring overseas,” said Kathleen Peddicord, Founding Publisher of Live and Invest Overseas. “With the current strength of the U.S. dollar, the opportunity is now to take your hard-earned retirement savings and extend them even further in another country, while also benefiting from warmer climates, lower costs of living, and endless access to adventure.”

With thoughtful surveys sent out to our readers, systematic measuring capabilities, and our personal experience of traveling to more than 75 countries, we’ve developed a transparent index that provides detailed information to help retirees make informed decisions for their future,” continued Peddicord.
