List Ranks Military-Friendly Retirement States

By Heather Taylor0 Comments

The ideal retirement spot for those who have served our country could look different than it does for civilians. A recent report from WalletHub outlined those differences and how the state they live in could impact their quality of life.

Retired members of the military have considerations that other retirees don’t when they stop working, due in part to special military-only benefits they receive. In addition, changes in national policy can affect the military more directly than non-military members, the report said.  The report also looked at the location of bases and VA administrative facilities.

The results might not sit well with southerners: The list points to mostly northern U.S. states for more favorable conditions for veterans.

The 10 most ideal states for members of the military to retire, according to the report, include:
Wyoming
New Hampshire
Montana
South Dakota
Nebraska
Alaska
Delaware
Kansas
Oklahoma
Maine
