Looking to retire someplace safe? Look north, and abroad

Western Canada Steve Smith | Tetra images | Getty Images

Looking for some peace and quiet in retirement and willing to pay for the privilege? Try looking outside U.S. borders. We took the top 10 countries in this year’s Global Peace Index from the Sydney, Australia-based Institute for Economics and Peace and reordered them from most expensive to least, according to the cost of living index by country for midyear 2019 from Numbeo.com. The U.S. doesn’t make the list, but you don’t have to look too far to find suitable future digs, as one country in North America ranks high for safety and (relative) value. The nine other contenders — all orderly but varying in cost — are farther away in Europe, Asia and Oceania. Here they are, in order of cost from least to most affordable.

10. Iceland

This tourism hot spot (literally — Iceland is famed for its geothermal springs) is home to just under 357,000 people, although it welcomes millions of vacationers each year. Isolated in the North Atlantic midway between Europe and North America, Iceland is actually ranked No. 1 on the Global Peace Index 2019. It’s No. 10 here, however, because it’s pretty pricey compared with the others on this list — coming in at sixth most expensive country (according to Numbeo). Most goods and foods are imported, and Icelanders are relatively well off, so you won’t be saving much. In addition, the weather can be brutal. According to website SmartAsset, getting a residence permit in Iceland so you can stay for more than three months at a time means proving you have at least $2,376 a month in income, health insurance valid in the country, a place to reside and no criminal record, among other criteria.

9. Japan

The Land of the Rising Sun can be a welcoming place for people in their golden years. Thanks to its partly Confucian cultural heritage, Japan traditionally honors and cares for its elderly. In terms of peace and quiet, the country is also right up there, coming in at No. 9 on the worldwide Peace Index. Its relatively high eighth-place finish in overall expense helps place it at No. 9 in our overseas retirement spot rankings. Given its safety, high-quality health care, First World economy and infrastructure, plus that heritage of respect for elders, Japan looks to be an ideal destination for U.S. retirees looking for a new abode abroad. However, its high costs and the difficulty in obtaining a residence visa — not to mention language differences — do up the ante in terms of difficulty in relocating there, says Investopedia.

8. Denmark

Copenhagen, Denmark svetikd | iStock | Getty Images

Life might just be a fairy tale in the homeland of Hans Christian Andersen. Ranked fifth in the Peace Index but 10th in Numbeo’s cost ranking, prosperous Denmark lands at No. 8. The country also consistently ranks at or near the top of happiness rankings, coming in at No. 2 in the 2019 World Happiness Report, just behind nearby Finland. OK, it’s idyllic but not cheap. Not put off by costs? Now it gets tricky. Getting a residence permit in Denmark can be difficult, even more so than in other European Union countries. You’re in luck (or are luckier) if you hold a passport from another EU nation, are married to a Dane, are (still) a student or can be an au pair, or — and this category might hold out some possibilities — can prove “strong ties to Denmark.” You can find more information at: www.nyidanmark.dk/en-GB.

7. Singapore

It’s no surprise this Asian city-state places on a list of peaceful places, coming in at No. 7 in Peace Index rankings. “Safe,” however, is a relative term. Singapore is notorious for draconian laws punishing everything from littering, gum chewing and jay walking to expression of same-sex orientation. Singapore is also expensive, coming in at No. 12 worldwide. If paying a lot for not being able to do much appeals, the city might just be for you. Retiring there isn’t the easiest, as the country has no retirement visa program. But permanent residency is possible, especially if you have at least $1.8 million or so to invest in the local economy, according to Investopedia.

6. New Zealand

Henderson Bay, New Zealand chameleonseye | iStock Editorial | Getty Images

Kiwi country comes in at No. 6, thanks to a second-place finish in the Peace Index race and status as the 21st most expensive country that Numbeo ranked. New Zealand declared itself a nuclear-free zone in 1984, causing the U.S. to suspend its military treaty obligations to the country. (New Zealanders still deem that loss worth it, much to American officials’ ongoing chagrin.) Prices are pretty much on par with the U.S. to boot. Sound good? Consider applying for the country’s two-year Temporary Retirement Visitor Visa program. All you’ll need is around $495,000 (NZ $750,000) to invest in New Zealand for two years, another $330,000 or so (NZ$500,000) or so to live on, and an annual income of about $40,000 (NZ $60,000).

5. Austria

In Austria, the hills are alive … perhaps with the sound of retiree skiers happily swooshing down Alpine slopes. This landlocked European Union member ranks No. 5 overall, thanks to its fourth-place Peace Index finish and status as the 24th most expensive nation (according to Numbeo). Stereotypical Teutonic law and order rules the day in this land of Mozart and marzipan, which, for example, boasts the second-lowest homicide rate in the 28-member EU. (It’s about 0.66 per 100,000 inhabitants, compared with 5.03 per 100,000 people in the U.S.) As in Denmark, obtaining residency in Austria can be difficult for non-EU citizens. Information can be found at www.migration.gv.at/en. Of course, U.S. citizens can visit for up to 90 days without a visa, and foreigners are allowed to buy so-called holiday properties ( “Zweitwohnsitz”) with local government permission.

4. Canada

Fly fishing, Canada Hero Images | Hero Images | Getty Images

The Great White North is our No. 4 finisher, ranking as sixth-safest country in the world and, as 28th most expensive, a tad cheaper than the U.S. (No. 25). The Canadian dollar, or loonie, is worth about 75 U.S. cents, offering an instant 25% savings on many expenses. What really makes Canada a standout retirement destination is its cultural and geographic proximity to the States. (Although, for those looking for more foreign flair, French-speaking regions such as Quebec offer more exotic relocation destinations.) Obtaining actual residency might not be worth all the extra legal expense and effort, given Canada’s ease of access and the fact that Americans can stay there for up to six months without a visa. There are no restrictions on buying property in Canada, although nonpermanent residents must pay a special one-time 15% “speculation tax” upon closing.

3. Slovenia

Lake Bled, Slovenia susan.k. | Moment | Getty Images

Heading back across the Atlantic to the European Union, we find Slovenia, a scenic ex-Yugoslav state that is now the most prosperous of the former communist nations admitted to the EU (back in 2004). The Alpine nation bordering Austria and Italy ranks No. 8 on the Peace Index but is just 49th on Numbeo’s list of most expensive countries, twice as far down as the U.S. Even though Slovenians use the euro, prices are significantly lower than in the States or Western Europe. As an EU member, Slovenia doesn’t offer a retirement visa for non-Europeans, so prospective retiree residents would have to apply for a renewable annual temporary residence permit before arrival. After five years under this arrangement, permanent residency can be applied for. To gain temporary residency, you must have basic monthly income equal to Slovenia’s — around U.S. $1,000 — according to website MoneyWise.

2. Portugal

Ponte de Lima, Portugal THEGIFT777 | iStock Unreleased | Getty Images

Sunny and scenic Portugal — No. 3 on the Peace Index and Numbeo’s 54th most expensive country, with costs up to a third lower than in the U.S. — comes in second. Wildly popular with retirees from northern European countries, Portugal also offers possibilities for Americans. In fact, SmartAsset.com reports that the country has taken steps to make residency easier for all retiree takers (at least compared with other EU nations). Visit a Portuguese consulate in the States with proof of income, citizenship, health insurance and a conviction-free past, and you could walk away with a five-year residence permit. All that’s left is to book a flight to Lisbon, one of the closest EU destinations to the U.S. (just a 6½-hour flight from Boston).

The highest-paying sales job in the US pays as much as $185,000 a year—here are the other 6

More than 15 million people work in the sales industry within the United States, or about 5% of the total population, doing everything from informing your doctor about new medications to bringing you a different size of pants in the dressing room at your favorite clothing store.

And while the overall median salary for a role in this field is low, $41,790, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are a plenty of sales jobs that will earn you well over double that.

In Glassdoor calculations, salaries include flat base compensation as well as typical commission rates for each role — an important note, as base pay accounts for only 67% of a sales professionals’ total pay, while commission accounts for around 32%, according to Glassdoor.

New tech in UK prisons can pinpoint illegal phones to an 'exact cell'

The U.K.’s Ministry of Justice has started to use “specialist mobile detection technology” to find and then seize phones that are being used illegally by prisoners.

The technology is being used to tackle the problem of mobile phone smuggling, which authorities said resulted in both violence and drug-dealing inside prisons.

When it detects the presence of a cell phone in prison, the technology sends real-time alerts. A digital heat map is used to identify the strength of the phone’s signal, enabling prison officers to home in on its location “to the exact cell.”

Prison staff are able to look at the data of a specific period of time to monitor the emergence of any patterns, such as when prisoners work together to smuggle drugs into a prison. The intelligence can be analysed and lead to arrests.

The technology has undergone a six-month trial in one prison and is being rolled out to four more facilities. The locations of where it’s being used have not been made public.

“As criminals look for new ways to smuggle contraband into prisons, it is vital that we stay one step ahead, and this kind of technology will help prevent them operating from their cells,” David Gauke, the U.K.’s justice secretary, said in a statement Sunday.

“This is vital to ensuring prisons are places of safety and rehabilitation, where offenders can turn their backs on crime for good,” Gauke added.

Comparably: The 10 highest-paying entry-level jobs in tech

The U.S. tech industry is currently adding new jobs at almost 400% the rate of other fields, and it pays workers about twice as much too, according to jobs site Comparably.

That high pay isn’t just limited to a handful of senior roles or hardcore technical positions. New college graduates and career changers can earn into the six figures from their first day in the office in many of tech’s entry-level positions.

To find the roles that paid workers top dollar from the outset, Comparably analyzed more than 8,000 tech workers’ salary records to find the ones that led to the biggest paychecks during the first three years of an employee’s career. The results are good news for those who want to work in tech without learning how to code. While several of the 10 highest-paying gigs rely on strong computer science or programming skills, quite a few call for a knowledge of business or marketing.

No matter the role, wise tech workers would head to San Francisco or Seattle to start their careers. These two locations paid the most for each of the following 10 positions, beating out other top cities like Los Angeles, New York City, Boston, Chicago and Austin, Comparably found.

Tax Day is here. How to make sure you're all set for the IRS

If you haven’t pulled your tax return together and sent it into the IRS by now, you’re just about out of time.

Monday, April 15, is Tax Day for most Americans.

Due to Patriots’ Day holidays on Monday in Maine or Massachusetts, taxpayers in those states have until midnight Wednesday to file.

Procrastinators can request a six-month extension to submit their returns, but you only have until midnight Monday to submit taxes owed.

The IRS is expecting to receive about 153 million individual tax returns from 2018 over the course of this year.

This season is the first time taxpayers will file under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This overhaul of the tax code roughly doubled the standard deduction to $12,000 for singles ($24,000 for married-filing-jointly), eliminated personal exemptions and limited itemized deductions.

A toddler locked his father’s iPad for 48 years, here’s what to do if that happens to you

If someone repeatedly enters the wrong password on your iPhone or iPad over and over again, it will eventually start to delay the amount of time before you can try to enter the password again. That’s what allegedly happened to one man’s iPad, according to CNN. The man’s iPad was accidentally locked by his 3-year-old for 48 years, until 2067. If you didn’t back it up, at least you’ll be able to use your iPad or iPhone again without having to wait a few decades. Here’s what to do if you get locked

If someone repeatedly enters the wrong password on your iPhone or iPad over and over again, it will eventually start to delay the amount of time before you can try to enter the password again. That’s what allegedly happened to one man’s iPad, according to CNN. The man’s iPad was accidentally locked by his 3-year-old for 48 years, until 2067.

If this happens to you, there’s an easy fix to get your iPad back up and running, and you won’t lose any data if you’ve been backing it up regularly. If you didn’t back it up, at least you’ll be able to use your iPad or iPhone again without having to wait a few decades.

These 40 cities may see housing prices decline, survey says

If you’re looking for a new home in an urban area, you might be attracted to some more up-and-coming areas.

But buyer beware: Some of those areas come with big risks.

That is according to a new study from GOBankingRates, which evaluated cities based on multiple criteria: percentage of homes with mortgages in negative equity, foreclosure rates, delinquency rates on mortgage payments, homeowner vacancy rates and rental vacancy rates. The site then ranked 40 cities according to these risks.

To be sure, many areas of the country are holding steady. Separate research from CoreLogic, a provider of property information, data and analytics, released in March found that delinquency and foreclosure rates overall were the lowest since 2000.

More from Personal Finance:

Here are the most and least affordable cities to live in

Residents in this metro area saw taxes rise by more than $2,600

Do this when mortgage shopping and save $430 (in interest)

“You could see this as a list of bargains. But if things don’t improve, you’re just going to lose equity on your house,” said Andrew DePietro, lead researcher and data analyst at GOBankingRates.

On top of the list is Newark, New Jersey, which also came in first with highest delinquency rate and highest homeowner vacancy rate.

Other Northeast cities to make the list include Baltimore; Bridgeport, Conn.; Hartford, Conn.; Philadelphia; and Syracuse, New York.

15 jobs that pay more than $79,900 a year for people who hate math

If math class was your least favorite part of the school day, don’t worry. There are plenty of high-paying jobs out there that won’t require you to crunch numbers or run complex algorithms all day.

CNBC Make It combed through the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), a database run by the U.S. Department of Labor that contains detailed information on thousands of different jobs, to find the occupations that offer a median annual salary of at least $79,900 while also requiring little math prowess.

All jobs listed within O*NET receive a ranking between one and 100 that determines how important “using mathematics to solve problems” is within that occupation. Mathematician and statistician earned a score between 90 and 100 on the spectrum, while a few jobs, like singer, actor and janitor, required zero mathematical skills or knowledge.

Most jobs in the U.S. require some arithmetic, which is why we limited our list to roles with a math-importance level of 31 or less.

Below are 15 high-paying jobs you may want to consider if you never want to solve for x, learn about limits, or figure out the volume of a container again:
