In the Thai visa system, foreigners are eligible for O-A visas (Long Stay/retirement) and annual extensions based on RETIREMENT starting at age 50.

 

There are frequent news stories in the press about people from many countries not having enough saved for retirement. 

 

So this poll is limited to people that have already reached the age of 50 and up.

 

So this poll asks people 50 and over ONLY, what is their NET WORTH of all their assets.

 

Including realistic value of owned real estate, all bank accounts, all retirement accounts, etc.etc. MINUS liabilities and debt.

 

Very roughly of course.

 

This poll is for entertainment and discussion purposes only.

 

It is NOT a public poll. Members won't be able to identify how you voted. 

 

But I think people 50 and over might be interested to see how they stack up relative to other Thaivisa members.

 

Someone with a million dollars at 80 is much better off financially than someone with the same money at 50 because of course it doesn't need to last as long. So ultimately the results are pretty darn meaningless, which is why again, this poll is only for entertainment and discussion purposes. 

 

On including value of real estate, of course most people live in their real estate but it's there to possibly sell for cash if needed or desired.

less than zero and up to 10k will be the absolute majority..no need for polls

Thailand is rarely a place for wealthy to retire, there are far better options, Monaco maybe?

I hope not!

 

Proactive comment -- I used U.S. dollars, not Thai baht, not Bitcoins, and not Swiss Franc because:

Based on TV posters huge concern over fags and booze prices, the answer to the OP's question seems to be a resounding No.

Perhaps.

Of course, this poll doesn't touch on INCOME at all. Only assets expressed in net worth, value of all assets minus debt.

What about moderators? Technical staff?

I can't speak to that. 

It's just a forum poll for entertainment and discussion purposes.

It's not a tax audit.
