No surprises here: N.J. ranked America’s 5th worst state for retirees

TRENTON, N.J. — Millennials and small business owners aren’t the only ones deciding to leave New Jersey behind.

A new study conducted by WalletHub found New Jersey is America’s 5th worst state in which to retire based upon “three key dimensions: 1) Affordability, 2) Quality of Life and 3) Health Care” comprised of 46 individual metrics ranging from taxes on retirement savings and the cost of doctor’s visits to access to museums and golf courses.

Only Rhode Island, Vermont, Kentucky and West Virginia finished further back/down in the rankings.

It’s one of many deeply troubling trends which went unaddressed in Phil Murphy’s Tuesday ‘State of the State’ address.
