How Much Money Is Recommended for the Permanent Move to the Philippines?

Art, just a re(tired) Fil-Am:

That is like asking how deep is a hole.
US$3000 a month is more than adequate. Less than that is a bit precarious - but very possible.

Now, do you think that the Philippines is still a "Third World Country" with "First and or Second World Prices" they have now? That's why many have considered or already have moved back to their own perspective home country!
The Philippines isn't what it used to be though they say "it's more fun in the Philippines", but now it comes with a price, along with all the immigration bureaucratic hassles, when not too long ago a $1,000 a month or less was adequate for your average retired foreigner to live on who were not willing to live like your average local Filipinos, who for some were already living in poverty conditions!
The hard fact of the matter that sometimes one has to accept is that, it's always a matter of money, either one has it or one doesn't due to unfortunate circumstances in one's life in the past, during and or after a forced or voluntary retirement with no other options of gainful employment, but to make due with what one has to live or survive on! That's just life!
