If you’re planning to retire abroad—because you want to live better for less, diversify your investments or enjoy a greater degree of adventure—you should consider Panama, Ecuador and Malaysia.
According to a newly-released report from InternationalLiving.com, these are considered the top spots for North American retirees in 2014.
The Annual Global Retirement Index—now in its 23nd year—ranks the best international retirement destinations. To compile the ranking, InternationalLiving.com editors collated data from its team of experts on the ground in the most popular countries among U.S. and Canadian expat retirees. Editors assessed factors ranging from the price of groceries and average temperature, to utility costs and the friendliness of locals.
The information was then used to score each of the top countries out of 100 in categories such as “Real Estate,” “Climate,” “Special Benefits for Retirees,” “Health Care,” “Retirement Infrastructure,” “Entertainment and Amenities,” “Ease of Integration” and “Cost of Living.”
“This Index is designed to be a useful resource for folks considering a move overseas,” says Jennifer Stevens, executive editor of InternationalLiving.com. “We take great pains to bring more than statistics to the table. Most important, really, is the on-the-ground input and judgment that our editors and regular contributors living in these places around the world bring to the Index. It isn’t meant to be a scientific output. It’s designed to be a real-world snapshot of the places we deem most worth a potential-retiree’s attention today." [ph.yahoo.com]
