Ted and Mary were both born in 1955 and are 63-years-old. It would've been nice if Ted and Mary could have waited several more years for the maximum benefit of Social Security, but they aren't going to be able to. The only way they could live off their retirement of $500,000 with their current lifestyle would be to search for risky investments. They know this wouldn't be a good idea. They want to go the safe route and just take Social Security out early instead of risking their portfolio.
In addition to economic factors, we review a host of livability measures, include rates of violent crime (murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault) for individual jurisdictions as compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, ruling out places with rates that are multiples above the national average. Since health care is so important to retirees, we look at the ratio of primary-care physicians per capita data compiled at countyhealthrankings.org, striking those that have way too few doctors. Although not dispositive, we also consider the latest Milken Institute report on “Best Cities for Successful Aging.” The study, which is periodically updated, ranks 381 metro areas on a variety of wellness, health care and transportation measures, and thus captures some factors our primary analysis might miss.  We also take into account air quality data compiled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

If you're a native English speaker, you're in luck-there are tons of foreigners looking to practice their English skills, and you can help them simply by engaging in conversation. Even foreigners with years of English lessons often are looking to develop their conversation skills. Meet at a coffee shop or even offer Skype sessions.

I started up a news website along with my husband in 2006.  We are both news junkies who love to write.  I always wanted to be a journalist,  but I knew where that career field was heading and I didn’t really want to be an intern or do time as the obituary writer.  So we took our passion for news and for writing and our love for our hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and we started up a news site.
Before the evolution of work-at-home, call center employees had to drive to a brick-and-mortar site each day to sit at a desk and provide service to customers. Today, companies like Alpine Access, Convergys, and Asurion hire employees to answer customer service calls for their clients, who range from cable television service providers to healthcare companies. Employees are paid a starting rate of around $9 per hour, depending on the company. Although this hourly pay is below the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ reported median rate of $14.70 per hour for a customer service representative, work-from-home call center agents do not face commuting, clothing, meals, and other costs associated with working at a brick-and-mortar center. Some of these call centers also offer opportunities for advancement. Supervisory, managerial, training, and human resources positions are also available as telecommuting positions.

If they swapped $100k of savings for additional preferred shares, the portfolio income would increase to about $19,420. They would give up about $2,000 in interest income from their CDs, but the net result would still be about $5,500 more in income each year. That would put them above $42,000 and they would still have a significant amount of cash on hand to draw from during their retirement.

There are any number of reasons why a place drops off or is added to our best list.  Some of the biggest factors are economic. These include median home prices, cost of living compared with the national average, and state tax issues, including whether a state imposes income taxes on Social Security, whether it offers special breaks for other retirement incomes and whether it imposes an estate or inheritance tax. Cost of living alone tends to exclude most of the Northeast and the West Coast, although we look favorably on Pittsburgh, Pa. (a perennial favorite, despite its higher than average crime) and Wenatchee, Wash. (If you want to stay in your home state, and don’t see any options on our list, take a look at our selection of The Best Places To Retire In Each State, which offers a best and a runner-up for each of the 50, Alaska and Hawaii included.)

EBay seems as ancient as a dinosaur in today's fast-moving webiverse, but it's still the top online auction marketplace, where users go to order collectibles, rare goods, and other items. Building a solid reputation on eBay can take some time, as most sales go to the power sellers who have established five-star ratings. Still, if you can acquire the goods no one else has, you can make a nice income reselling items on eBay.

My 10-year-old son brought home a book from our park’s free library box. It was a biology textbook – teachers edition.

We listed it for sale for $130 and it sold! Going to tell him, he just made $130!
