Best States to Retire from MoneyRates.com
No. 2: Kentucky
Why it's in the top 10: Though life expectancy is low, Kentucky scored above-average in all other categories. The Bluegrass State's economic factors make it attractive to seniors with fixed incomes.
Economic factors: Kentucky tied with Iowa for the third-best score in this category. Unemployment is a bit high, but cost of living and tax burdens are among the lowest in the U.S.
Climate: Kentucky enjoys a moderate climate, which helped it to an above-average score in this category.
Life expectancy: At 75.2, this is one of America's lowest, making life expectancy Kentucky's only below-average category.
Crime: Violent and property crime rates are both below average in Kentucky.
No. 1: Texas
Why it's the best state for retirement: Despite a high property crime rate, Texas outranked all other states with its outstanding scores for economic factors and climate.
Economic factors: Texas scored very well for economics, thanks to a low cost of living and low tax burden.
Climate: The climate for such a big state varies, but overall Texas received strong scores for its generally warm climate.
Life expectancy: At 76.7 years, life expectancy for Texans is a little below median.
Crime: The only real blemish for Texas, the high crime rate--especially the nation's highest rate of property crime--might scare off some retirees.

After they finished and the moderator opened the floor for questions, the usual thing happened. The questioners by and large had no questions. Instead they offered up prolix piles of words that led nowhere in particular. Some sought to show off what they mistook as their own superior knowledge. Others scolded. A few got lost in their own labyrinths.
Good Read ... go check it out.
