If I ever get the right to live here, it will most likely be where we retire because it's so much cheaper than my home and my wifes family is all here. You need at least 2 million USD before you can even start looking at houses in Bermuda lol. Most likely end up going back home to work for a few years before retiring here. Can easily pull in around 65k USD a year doing basically nothing lol. I was making 25$ an hour tax free just driving a fork lift. There's no laws about overtime, so you can also work as much as you want, provided there's work. I use to do 60-70 hours a week leading up to Xmas to pay for my trips back and forth to Sweden a few times a year.

So, depending on where your coming from. Sweden can either seem really expensive to retire or very cheap. As for how much you need, just caculate your yearly expenses and leave enough extra to cover any unforseen problems.

About a Billion Sek will be okay for me. But I think it'd be better to make that money by doing something that is already fun. That way it doesn't even feel like work.
