10 worst states for retirement
Retirement is an ongoing challenge for employers and employees — given lackluster savings (according to the Federal Reserve, nearly 25% of non-retired adults haven’t saved any money for retirement), increased life expectancies and threats to Social Security.
But considering where to retire may help employees by making their post-work savings go even further.
Some states are better for this than others. Financial website WalletHub has compared states across three key metrics: affordability, quality of life and healthcare.
Affordability was calculated using metrics such as tax-cut friendliness and adjusted cost of living. Quality of life measured areas including crime rates and water and air quality. Lastly, healthcare put weight on areas including healthcare facilities, physicians per capita and life expectancies.
According to WalletHub’s research, these states came up on the bottom.
