This video is meant to educate on the medical insurance and health care options available in Ecuador. There are distinct advantages to both private insurance programs and government programs such as IESS. We let Carlos Ramirez of Blue Box in Cuenca Ecuador help us navigate these programs to provide you with information to make an informed decision as an Expat in Ecuador. If you wish to contact Carlos or Blue Box you can use the following:
Ecuador is affordable, and the lifestyle you can have on a typical Social Security check of $1,500 a month for a single person or $2,500 for a couple is very attractive. Budgets vary, and many live in Cuenca Ecuador on much less than $1,500 and others far exceed $1,500. We’ve met people living on under $1,000 while we’ve been here, so that is a possibility.

Julie and I retired early not by luck but by planning.
One of our spokes to our wheel for savings, and now an income stream
is Fundrise. Basically we are invested in many apartment complexes around the country.
We get a portion of the rents in the form of dividends, and growth in value with the appreciation
of the properties. We currently have selected an income REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust)
which historically pays between 7.5% – 9% annually in dividends. You can chose a balanced REIT which has a split between appreciation and dividends or a REIT where it’s focused on appreciation and not dividends.
Check it out to see if it’s a fit for your savings, or retirement strategy. Feel free to share this with those you feel may benefit from this program.
