Alabama Makes ‘Best Bargains for Retirement’ List

It’s unusual for Mississippi to lead a listing that reflects a positive outcome, but that’s what happened recently when the job resource website Zippia put out a ranking of best bargains for retirement.

Alabama came in at number 9, but sports a good bit more beachfront than states that finished better in the listing, such as Kentucky, Missouri and Indiana.

Forget Florida and the West and East Coasts. More retirees should be looking towards the South when planning their retirement. Affordable housing and low cost of living make it the place to be for retirees.

Retirees should choose their city carefully, since the cost of living in many traditional places for seniors, such as Florida, can quickly burn through those lifetime savings.
