I used to wonder whether there’s a connection between financial fitness and physical fitness.

After writing this story, I no longer wonder.

    Andrew, who would you recommend for advice how to become expat , how to handle situation with banks , brokerage accounts ,USA credit cards since , once someone no longer has US address? So, technical info, rather then portfolio diversification ,

    • Hi Miki,

      I’m going to assume you are an American. You should keep your U.S. bank accounts and cards when you become an expat. Make sure you keep your account with Vanguard open, if you have one. While abroad, you won’t be able to contribute to an IRA, unless you make an income that exceeds the foreign income exclusion, which is about $106,000 USD per year. You can open a bank account in your expat country when you get there, for day to day expenses. Send your income savings to the U.S. bank account, and from that account, transfer to Vanguard. Make sure you read my book as well. That’s it! Enjoy your expat journey. Here’s the link to the expat book:
