Montana Named One of the Best States for Retirement


Montana was recently named one of the 10 best states for retirement in 2015 by Bankrate. Bankrate ranked all 50 states for a variety of factors that are important to seniors including low cost of living, strong health care systems, low crime, low tax rates and comfortable temperatures among other things.

Of all 10 states on the list, Montana came in at #7. According to Bankrate, Montana’s strengths were personal well-being and low taxes. Close proximity to nature and national parks were significant factors as well as low cost of living, reasonable taxes and a relatively low crime rate.

Bankrate also applied a “well-being” score to the rankings which measures the happiness and satisfaction with residents’ surroundings. With that said, it’s no wonder Montana made the list!


The rankings are as follows:

#10. Nebraska

#9. Arizona

#8. South Dakota

#7. Montana

#6. Iowa

#5. Virginia

#4. Idaho

#3. Utah

#2. Colorado

#1. Wyoming
