Increased numbers of American babyboomers are relocating to Belize in search of a tax free, more affordable and better quality of life.
There are an estimated 77 million babyboomers in America who are embarking upon or about to enter into retirement – and thanks to the dire state of the US economy, the way the stock markets have crashed and housing markets across the States are depressed, a new study by Ernst and Young shows that up to 60% of these babyboomers will have to cut their living standards by a quarter if they want to survive in retirement.
The study by the global accounting giant has looked at how Americans are going to survive on the shrunken pension pots the majority of them now have following America’s terrible economic crisis. It discovered that for the majority of American retirees, they just don’t have sufficient financial assets to see them through their retirement if they stay living the same life in America.
It is precisely this reason why more American retirees now choose to live in Belize in retirement, because in Belize they can live tax efficiently, they can live for less, they can live in more affordable homes and enjoy an even better standard of living than they currently have in depressed America.
