You’ve saved and planned and now, in retirement, you have the necessary money you need to live comfortably and securely. Or do you? One never knows when the unexpected will arise or when circumstances will lead to unplanned expenditures. Fear of running out of money often eclipses fear of death for retirees and many try to be extra frugal so as to preserve their assets. While that may sound like a wise idea, in fact, such stringent frugality could have its downside, both for the individual and the broader economy. While no one can predict the future or prevent the unexpected, one consideration you can control is where you live during retirement, which may in turn affect how fast your money gets spent. Recently the website GOBankingRates did some calculations to determine how long a retirement nest egg of $1 million would last in each state. The results varied significantly, depending on such things as the cost of food, utilities, housing and health care. See how they did their calculations Here.
