South Carolina is a Great Place to Retire

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Ashton Pointe, Beaufort, SCWhere to retire is a deeply personal decision that no one else can make for you. However, if you haven't already settled on a destination, a comprehensive analysis of your options can help narrow your search.

We rated all 50 states based on quantifiable factors that are important to many retirees. Our rankings favored states that are affordable—especially in terms of lower taxes on retirees and lower health care costs. Then we took health into account—both the economic health of each state and the overall health of the population. Finally, we rewarded states with relatively prosperous populations of residents age 65 and up.

We ranked 10 states in the top rankings for retirement destinations. They offer a wide diversity of climates and lifestyles, so you're likely to find one that suits your tastes. Of course, states are big places, so we narrowed the search even more for you. Within each, we identified a city or two that should hold particular appeal to retirees.

#6 South Carolina

Population: 4.7 million
Share of population 65+: 14.7%
Cost of living: 12% below the U.S. average
Average income for 65+ households: $39,985
Average health care costs for a retired couple: Below average at $373,631
South Carolina's tax rating for retirees: Tax Friendly

If the mild weather and southern charm of the Palmetto State isn't enough of a retirement draw for you, surely the affordability can tempt you. On top of well-below-average living costs, the tax situation goes easy on a fixed income, too. South Carolina doesn't tax Social Security benefits and offers generous exemptions on other types of retirement income. It also does not levy an inheritance or estate tax. Property taxes tend to be very low.

South Carolina is One of the Best States to Find a Job

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Ashton Pointe, Beaufort, SCSome states are adding jobs much faster than others. CNBC knows, because we've been measuring job creation in all 50 states for 10 years in our annual America's Top States for Business study.

Job growth is a key metric in our Economy category, measuring employment increases over the previous 12 months based on seasonally adjusted nonfarm payroll numbers from the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. That means we've been measuring job growth since June of 2006. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, but these 10 states have been the best places to find a job over the last 10 years.

South Carolina didn't experience the overbuilding that many of its neighbors did during the housing boom, But the overall economic crisis still hit hard-and it hit the state earlier than most. That has made for easier comparisons as the recovery rumbled along, bit SC has also benefited from a surging health-care sector that continues to add jobs.

#10 South Carolina

2006-2016 Job Growth 8.28%
Net jobs added: 156.200
Key industries: Healthcare, manufacturing
10-year Tops States Economy Rank: No. 40

Beaufort, SC has Been Named One of 10 Best Places to Retire

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 11, 2017

Ashton Pointe, Beaufort, SCWhere are the best places to retire in the U.S.? According to John Brady, founder of TopRetirements.com, the absolute best cities and towns for older Americans have good weather, access to health care, and a certain “wow” factor. Throw in access to adult education, cultural activities, job opportunities for older Americans, low housing costs and income-tax rates, low crime rate, and good walkability and livability — and you get a list of both well-known and lesser-known cities and towns that retirees might fancy.

6. Beaufort, S.C.

Beaufort, a city of just 12,000, is described as a “big retirement destination,” especially for those who like charm, history and golf (you won’t be far from Hilton Head). Also, 304 acres of this charming town in South Carolina’s Low Country have been designated a National Historic Landmark. Plus, Beaufort has a diverse economy — the University of South Carolina has a branch here. Another advantage: South Carolina is an income-tax-friendly state for retirees. Of course, there are some blemishes: if you fancy living in a big city, this might not be the place for you; it is a small town. (It was once named the “Best Small Southern Town” by Southern Living magazine.) People looking for urban excitement might find this golf- and boating-oriented area boring after a while.
