MarketWatch lists the as follows:
- New York
- Rhode Island
- New Jersey
These ten were rated the worst by the website TopRetirements.com based on three criteria: fiscal health, taxation, and climate.
Ha! It's a "bad states" list that Michigan finally didn't end up on!!!! ;-)
Hold on, not so fast. Michigan was listed as one of the ten most troubled states. Then again, that alone didn't make it a top 10 loser for retirement. Must have been the great weather that kept it out of the cellar. Yeah, right.
Just another piece making the point that where you live has a big impact on your finances -- even when you're no longer working.
I'm not sure what we'll do when we retire -- stay here or move. I do know several retirees who have moved on, mostly to warmer weather states with little to no state income tax. Hmmmmmm........now I'm thinking.....
