I am helping my parents plan their retirement by looking into possible cities and/or communities for them to settle. My father has worked in NYC for the duration of his professional career and wants to retire somewhere in the Northeast. After much internet research but very little progress, he wants to spend Sun-Tues (Oct. 13-Oct. 15) driving around DE, MD, PA, and northern VA to scope out possible areas. I have been asked to accompany him on this trip but I want to create some structure around the trip to avoid simply driving around aimlessly. [more inside]

How can I find a fee based financial adviser with expertise in international situations for personal banking, investing, retirement saving and tax planning? I am a Canadian expat, former UK resident, and immigrant to America (living in Chicago) and will have income and retirement savings coming from multiple countries and uncertainty about where I will ultimately end up.
How can I find someone who can help me with my particular situation?

I work for a public library and have 18 years of service. I can retire with full benefits at 30 years. I have the option of paying the state a lump sum of $10,000 to service purchase my four years in the Marines. This means I can retire earlier. I have to think this has to be worth it. It will put a dent in my 401k but to retire at 51 rather than 55 seems like a hell of a good deal for $10,000. Thoughts?

I am 60 years old and thinking of retiring, but unsure about how much money I need to live without working. I have a net worth of $3 million, half of it in two pieces of rental propery with the other half in stocks, bonds and a pension, but live in an expensive area and have a spouse who likes to live well and travel a lot. Can anyone out there offer some good advice?
