Retiring in Portugal - A Haven of Happiness

Retirement isn’t cheap, and it’s getting more expensive every year, especially in the United States thanks to inflation and medical costs.

Consider this… 

The average income for U.S. adults 65 and older is $75,254.

The median income for U.S. adults 65 and older is $47,620.

The average annual expenses for adults 65 and older are $48,872.

The average American 65 and older spends on average $4,818 per month in the United States. 

The average monthly Social Security benefit for retired workers in 2022 was $1,681 and rose to $1,827 in 2023.

The projected monthly Social Security benefit for retired workers in 2024 will be a mere $1,907…

There’s something wrong with that math…

If you’re willing to look beyond U.S. borders, though, you can make that check stretch much farther than you’d be able to back home, likely trading in for a more exciting, indulgent-feeling lifestyle in an exotic haven overseas.

There’s a common misconception that the only places in the world that would significantly reduce your cost of living are in Latin America or Asia… and, more specifically, that Europe is entirely out of reach for the average retiree.

Au contraire…

After a past life of 28 years living in the US, I have made Portugal my home the last 23 years now, and can give you over a hundred reasons you should consider a move to Portugal as well, although I will only highlight these… Cost of living; ease of integration; climate; lifestyle; amenities and healthcare. 

So why is Portugal a top retirement destination???…

You can retire in most of Portugal for as little as $3,000 per month for a couple, and even less if you stay away from major Cities of Lisbon or Porto, and own your own home!!!

Dreaming of a retirement that blends tranquility, culture, and the warmth of the Mediterranean sun???… 

And I can give you over a hundred reasons more, although I’ll briefly highlight the following reasons why retiring in Portugal could be your key to a fulfilling and joyous  new chapter for in your life…
