Tips for Budgeting

  • Before you plan your budget, you’ll want to look at your fixed, variable and discretionary expenses. These affect how much you’re able to save on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. Fixed and variable expenses are more difficult to alter, but discretionary expenses are easier to change as they represent the “wants” and not the “needs.” Our budget calculator can help.
  • If you’re in need of a financial advisor, SmartAsset’s financial advisor matching tool connects you with up to three local advisors for free! You’ll just have to complete a questionnaire about your financial situation, and the tool will do the rest. 

How Long $1mm Lasts in Retirement

SmartAsset's interactive map highlights places where $1 million will last the longest in retirement. Zoom between states and the national map to see the top spots in each region. Also, scroll over any city to learn about the cost of living in retirement for that location.

Rank City Housing Expenses Food Expenses Healthcare Expenses Utilities Expenses Transportation Expenses

Methodology We analyzed data on average expenditures for seniors, cost of living and investment returns to determine how many years of retirement a $1 million nest egg would cover in cities across America.

First, we looked at data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on the average annual expenditures of seniors. We then applied cost of living data from the Council for Community and Economic Research to adjust those national average spending levels based on the costs of each expense category (housing, food, healthcare, utilities, transportation and other) in each city. Using this data, SmartAsset calculated the average cost of living for retirees in the largest U.S. cities.

We assumed the $1 million would grow at a real return (interest minus inflation) of 2%. Then, we divided $1 million by the sum of each of those annual numbers to determine how long $1 million would cover retirement expenses in each of the cities in our study. Cities where $1 million lasted the longest ranked the highest in the study.
