In this week’s podcast, Executive Editor Jennifer Stevens delves deep into International Living’s Annual Global Retirement Index for 2023. Which destinations made the list? Which places lead the world in long-term visas, healthcare options, or cost of living? How affordable is a rental in Greece, or Mexico, or Portugal? Or even, why does International Living rank Italy’s climate higher than Panama’s?
Join Jen as she talks through the finer points of the Index, and explains the best ways to use it in your search for the overseas retirement that fits you best.

Joining Jen and Jim in this week’s episode is International Living Editor Seán Keenan; the technician behind the numbers. Every year, sometime around August, Seán begins gathering the data that eventually becomes the Retirement Index. Once that’s done, the IL editorial team hones and adapts the Index on an annual basis, ensuring that it keeps up to date with the questions, concerns, and benefits that mean most to potential expats.
Make no mistake, International Living's Annual Global Retirement Index is not a slipshod collection of government statistics or Googled data points—it’s compiled from information we solicit from our trusted in-country sources. Seán talks us through some of the methods we use to put it together, and some of the surprises and talking points from the results.
Settle in, press play, and find out as we welcome you to the latest episode of International Living’s Bigger Better World podcast.
