What to consider during Medicare open enrollment

It's Medicare open enrollment and if you’re 65 or older, this applies to you. The deadline to make changes is December 7th. Here are some pointers to keep in mind as you make changes to your Original Medicare and Advantage plans. You are likely already enrolled in original Medicare, parts A and B. Part A is free and covers hospital stays for the first 60 days, while part B charges a monthly premium and covers doctor visits, etc. It's generally recommended that you have both parts, even if you’re planning on retiring outside of the U.S. Waiting to enroll can incur a penalty of 10% of the premium each year you decide to wait after age 65. If you haven't yet enrolled, you can do so during the f

The joys (and complexities) of being multinational

Volatility was to be expected as rising Federal Reserve rates made cash more expensive to invest, not to mention geopolitical drama from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia, shaking oil markets.

Dealing with culture shock from living overseas

To a new expat, life abroad is colorful and exotic. This can also mean shock as you find yourself outside your comfort zone; facing new challenges that you were aware but didn’t fully come to realize until after the move. Expats face barriers not found at home, such as differences in language, economics, interpersonal relationships, and legal realities. I hope to stemm some of the concerns as you contemplate a move abroad. Living overseas is an amazing experience and I recommend that everyone try it at least once. But, it’s not for everyone. I, myself, have lived in Japan and the Czech Republic, having faced both the awesomeness and difficulties of being cut off from what I’m use to. Japan w
