Retiring overseas can offer immense advantages, including lower living expenses, great healthcare and the opportunity to see the world.

Don't have a lot of money saved? You may still be able to have a great future by retiring overseas. Kathleen Peddicord joins me to share how.

She explains how you can save money on housing and healthcare - two of the biggest costs of retirement - and still get excellent medical care and a beautiful, safe place to live.

This information is helpful even if you aren't retired and are thinking of relocating overseas while you are still working!

We discuss what happens if you have Medicare - can you use it overseas? Or if you come back to the US?

Then we talk about some of the best places to retire, including top picks in South America, Asia and Europe - including France and Italy. (Yes, they can be very affordable too!)

Kathleen also shares her tips for choosing the right place for you. Learn how to balance cost and quality to make the best decision for your future.

Kathleen is one of my most popular guests and once you listen to this you'll understand why.
