Squigglesrus posted a topic in Residency and Citizenship In Costa Rica - Laws and Current PolicyExperts - I have a neighbor who is applying for residency and he worked for the Railroad in the USA for many many years. He called the Embassy in CR to get a copy of his "SS income" and they said they cannot provide since he worked for the railroad. He has to contact the railroad in the US to get a letter. He did that, but they will not notarize the letter. Has anyone on this forum gone through the Pensionado process being a retired employee from the US railroad system? I've never heard of such, but guess anything is possible given that I believe the railroad is a pseudo-government entity. Thoughts? Any advice/guidance would be great. Thx! squigglesrus
Good Day All! My name is Tommy and I have been researching for quite some time on moving to the lovely isthmus nation of Costa Rica. Perpetual tourism seems like it works for some but I like piece of mind. My question: I am a 28 year old disabled US Army Veteran who receives a 60 percent disability rating from the federal government which equals $1009 a month. The language I read states that these pensions must be "for life" to count. Now there are certain scenarios where my rating could change but usually in favor of more money. Does Costa Rica recognize that as viable income for residency? If they do, what do I need as supporting documents? Thank you for your help, and if this was readily available information I apologize for missing it. Tommy
