Attempting to "boil it down". An essay.

Recommended Posts

After having joined AN shortly after the American Revolution and having read 1.3 million threads, I started to wonder if one could distill all this information into one thread. Including everything except visa matters. (Too volatile).


Still, some main concerns seem to take shape and bubbling to the surface for western seniors, contemplating to "relocate".


a)  In the mean time, every "western" country has some kind of "safety-net" for senior citizens (yes, even the USA).
b) No exotic country known, that offers (free or low cost) access for Western Seniors to any national Social Security Safety Net, just by taking residence there.
c) To substitute the lack of any "social security net" in the new country by marriage is a 2 sided sword and highly speculative at best.


As I gather, those points mentioned above have become part of any relocation plans for western seniors with access to internet. Diminishing their "re-location" urge dramatically.


 Especially as the price for a stable female companionship has increased to 15 K per month in Thailand.
------------------------
- This was mainly about financial concerns affecting western seniors, contemplating relocation. Next time we will preferrably talk about sex, drugs and rock and roll still available to western seniors. Wherever that may be. Cheers.

I hope to collect SS from my home country and spend it in Thailand.

What I really feel sorry for are the people who come to Thailand at an early age that never earn enough in America to eventually collect SS.  They're the ones who may find themselves between a rock and a hard place in the future. 😁

There seems to be a lot of concern and speculation about the financial security of "Western" expats here lately. Might I suggest that in the interest of your deep concern and thirst for social-economic knowledge, you fabulously rich and highly concerned folks pool your vast resources and take over some of the multitude of failed and dilapidated condo projects, fix/finish them to your standards and offer them to those who fit your description of "downtrodden" at a reasonable 25%, all inclusive rent. (25% of their meager retirement income)

This would give you a bevy of "test subjects" for your social-economic study to satisfy your near insatiable thirst for knowledge of other peoples' lives and give you something structured and concrete to do with your time. Who knows, you might even turn a profit. :wai:

I read here a million times that it was now 20K a month for a rentagirlfriend.

 

Except for Britmantoo who got in early and only pays 10K. Sort like a rent control deal.

I'll go for the 20K a month as it makes me get off lightly when I didn't pay her to be my GF/ wife, and she/ her family only managed to steal 110,000 from me. At that rate, the 60,000 they "borrowed" from me for the old crone's incineration ( the MIL ) was only 3 months girl rent.

 

BTW, is it calculated at how many times a month one gets it, and if one doesn't get it is it reduced?

Depends if gold digger I suppose. I wouldnt pay 20k a month.

 

Women everywhere. Easy to be fussy. Ive never had a women ask me for a monthly figure. These women asking 20k or 30k or whatever must be bargirls.
