I was in a similar situation as yours. I retired last July, received my first retirement check on August 1 and moved here on August 13. I started the process in the US and completed it here. But, because I didn't have 12 months of retirement in yet, I had to apply for Temporal - even though I met the income/savings requirement even without the retirement. I could have waited a year and stayed on a tourist visa, but we had a truck of household goods which required a Temporal or Permanente Visa in order to import our goods without duties/fees (menaje de casa).

That is the first I've read of the 12-month bank balance not applying.
Do you own a home in Playa?

Same here. For Permanente the consulated wanted 12 months of retirement income. For Temporal they did not care if it was retirement income or income from work. Came down with temporal, was able to switch to Permanente after the first year.

Yep - same here.

But - now I am excited. You are saying we can apply for Permanente after 1 year as Temporal? This would be perfect. I just received my 12th retirement check 2 days ago and our Temporal (1 year) expires next month. Would I have to go back to the US to switch to Permanent or can I apply here?

Per the NY consulate, 1 year of a minimum account balance is acceptable for permanent visa application. Property ownership is also a valid option.

Talk with a facilitator. Ours was unsure, checked with the immigration office here and they said yes. It does not mean a yes is assured elsewhere, or even here with a different person asking.
