Retirement Plan 101: Here’s How You Can Retire in the Caribbean

For a major part of our lives, we continue to work, spend, and save for others. Spouses, children, family, and friends are always the center of all our financial decisions. We work, earn, and then spend without thinking about what we want in life. Amidst this, we hold off our retirement planning, and when the time comes, we find ourselves in underprepared and confused.

But at the back of our minds, we all wish for peaceful retirement life. As we imagine relocating to the Caribbean to spend the rest of our life soaking in the sun, sipping Pina Coladas, and enjoying the beach, we wonder if it’s actually doable.

The answer is: Yes!

It’s possible for almost every American – even those without substantial savings – to enjoy a comfortable retirement in the Caribbean at $24,000 a year. However, you’ll need to start acting on your dreams right away!

To help you find your way to the Caribbean wonders, we have compiled this retirement planning guide. Take a look and find out your best course of action to move to the Caribbean.

Start Saving

Despite many reports suggesting that the cost of living in the Caribbean is lower than in the U.S, one cannot overlook the importance of saving. You need some financial stability to be able to buy a property in the Caribbean, acquire a residency permit, and lead a comfortable life. You may also want to start a business in the Caribbean, so having a small egg nest will be good.

Hire a Retirement Consultant

The next step is to hire a retirement consultant in the Caribbean. Here’s how the consultant will help you:

  1. Help you find the best possible retirement destination in the Caribbean for you
  2. Assist you regarding the application process, compiling documents, and local laws
  3. Facilitate you to buy a propertyor start a business as you live in the Caribbean

Pick a Location

With the help of your retirement consultant and a little research, you can find the best place for you in the Caribbean to make a home. You can move to St. Maarten for cultural diversity and economic stability, Anguilla or St. Kitts and Nevis for a laidback and quiet life, or Belize to enjoy the Caribbean life in the full-swing.

Acquire Residency Permit and Settle

Acquiring a residency permit in the Caribbean is a bit complex owing to the varying laws of all the Caribbean countries. However, with the help of an expert consultant, you’ll be able to easily apply and get successful in the quest. Another way to retire in the Caribbean is via residency by investment program. It will fast-track your process and help you settle in the Caribbean quicker than other routes.
