Retiring? Arkansas Is a Good Place to Do It


Arkansas is known for many things; the hospitality of its people and low cost of living chief among them.

These precise things have helped the Natural State garner some positive national attention. recently ranked the top 15 states where retirement savings can stretch the furthest, and Arkansas came in at No. 2.

The site considered how far $1 million in retirement savings would last depending on the state in which one retires. Fortunately for Arkansans, it doesn’t take a multi-million dollar portfolio to retire.

That’s one reason why so many retirees from out of state head to Arkansas. A 2017 survey from United Van Lines cited Arkansas as the ninth-most popular state for incoming retirees.

From the GoBankingRates post:

At $43,605 per year, the cost of living in Arkansas is cheaper than it is in all but one state. Housing costs in Arkansas are among the country’s lowest, and healthcare and transportation are about 15% below the national average.
