The best (and worst) states to grow old

24/7 Wall St.



Thomas C. Frohlich, Evan Comen and Sam Stebbins


Click through the slideshow above to see America's best and worst states to grow old in (ranked from best to worst).

Driven largely by baby boomers, who started turning 65 in 2011, the U.S. elderly population is expanding at a record pace. The number of Americans 65 and older is estimated to reach 83.7 million by 2050, nearly double the elderly population of 43.1 million in 2012. As a percentage of the population, elderly Americans are expected to make up more than 20% of U.S. residents by 2030, versus less than 15% in 2012 and less than 10% in 1970.

Americans of all ages face everyday economic, social, or medical challenges. However, low incomes, poverty, violent crime, medical expenses, and other such difficulties disproportionately hurt older people. Most older Americans will require some level of support sooner or later, and many elderly individuals need long-term care and support services.

All the top states are too freakin' cold for me, exception being Hawaii.

Wait, that's it.... you are already in a cryogenic state living there, so no one can actually tell if you are dead or not!
