These Are The Five Best States For Retirement

When it comes to choosing a good retirement destination, decision making should involve more than making a list of warm, sunny states. Taking the time to research areas and thinking through what you want can help you avoid disappointment and sidestep a potentially costly financial blunder.

“There are many factors to consider when deciding where to retire,” said Bankrate.com data analyst Adrian Garcia. “Some people may choose to stay close to family, while others prefer to seek out warm weather or affordable living. It comes down to very personal preferences, so it’s important to weigh all factors and determine what is most important for your happiness.”

Nebraska is the best state to retire, according to a new Bankrate report. To identify the best and worst places to retire, the study examined 11 public and private data sets related to the life of a retiree based on five categories (weightings in parentheses): affordability (40%), wellness (25%), weather (15%), culture (15%) and crime (5%).
