Take a fresh look at your lifestyle.

I want to retire at 55 in a country with free health care. My spouse will draw Social Security, and I have $160,000. Are we crazy?

I am 51 and would like to retire by 55. I will only have about $125,000 in retirement accounts plus another $35,000 in non-retirement accounts. I plan on moving out of the U.S. as I have a house that’s fully paid for overseas. After living there a year, I will get residency in the country, which includes essentially free national healthcare.
