What's my best options ?
I'm 59 yo , got knocked out of my work 2 years ago due to a health issue , I was in construction of 30 years . I took break to get well but I cannot go back to my old work ( time for change ) I didn't think it would be that hard to get work but I soon found out at 59 yo it is !!
Now been diagnosed with prostate cancer low grade on watch & see program .
Ive finally got a job but its very low $ and its very physical and I dont see how I can do it for much longer for both reasons .
Ive travelled a bit in SE Asia and love it .
I'm single , no debt and assets of around 1.2 - 1.4 mill , very little super .
Was on Newstart for 6 months & cannot survive on that .
Only options I can see are
Try & find another job but will be on the same low $ I feel ?
Downsize the house invest more $$ try & find another job , semi retire .
Rent current property out & move to a cheaper country like Vietnam & retire if possible ?
Sell up & move OS & retire .
Cannot get the age pesion till 67 yo
Not sure if I have anough $ ? Thoughts ??
Interests are motorcycling , hiking , gym & camping .
