      No, only US$1000 per month, irrevocable, for life per family unit, i.e., married spouses and children.

      Proof required of US$1000 per month changed ($12000 per year)...
      ATM withdrawal receipts are not accepted; must be from a bank teller and
      have your name, passport no. or Cedula no, and date of treansaction.
      Alternatively, if you made all the transfers at your bank in CR that bank
      may be able to write you a letter so stating.

      Dean, see just above for the amounts. Yes, you must pay for the months
      that you are not in CR. Pensionados are required to be in CR for 3 months
      per year (122 days), cumulatively.

      Hope this is useful info for you.
