East Tennessee has retirement affordability
If you are looking for an affordable, attractive retirement community............don't move. Few of us can look forward to a cushy retirement. According to the Employee Benefit Research Institute’s Retirement Confidence Survey, six in 10 workers report feeling at least somewhat confident that they’ll have enough money to retire comfortably, but only 18 percent have a high level of confidence. And nearly four in 10, have little or no retirement savings. Many are even worried about covering basic living expenses once they leave the workforce. If such a large proportion of American workers cannot grow a nest egg for their future, what other options provide a pathway to a comfortable retirement? For some, the only solution is to keep working. Or you can retire an area where you can stretch your dollar without sacrificing your lifestyle. To help Americans plan an affordable retirement while maintaining the best quality of life, WalletHub’s analysts compared the retiree-friendliness of communities across the country. The survey found East Tennessee has the third lowest adjusted cost of affordable living among areas in the US, and West Tennessee ranks second best in the cost of living.
