Just Getting Started on this Page

I’m keeping notes here about selecting a domicile State. I waited until now (more than two years from starting to plan) to hit this topic harder. Mostly because things could have changes as to which State was best. For example, obtaining healthcare is a big one. Here in 2017 it appears only Florida may have insurance available to full timers traveling out of State who are on pre-Medicare insurance. Karen will have Medicare a few months after we go full time. I’ll be pre-Medicare for some time.

We are planning to setup our new mail service well in advance of retirement. That should help with address changes and setting up or retirement benefits. Then change domical on our first trip out, before the end of the year.

Here is a good forum on splitting from your existing State. The suggestion is to leave during the year and file a partial year tax return in your previous State. One person suggested also sending a note in to cancel your voter registration. People make these suggestions so your original State does not come after you for taxes. (8/17/17)
