5 countries where life is good on a Social Security check alone

5 countries where life is good on a Social Security check alone
 
In the best-value countries outside the United States, American retirees are finding that they can live better than they could at home — for less. In fact, many report, they can enjoy a genuinely comfortable, low-stress retirement on their Social Security alone.
 
That's relatively hard to do in the United States, where the average Social Security benefit is $1,374 for a retired worker — or $2,090 for a couple.
 
"If you're looking at retiring on your Social Security check alone in the United States or have just a modest amount to supplement it, you're likely to find yourself living frugally," says Jennifer Stevens, Executive Editor of International Living.
