Kingsview Wealth Management, LLC is a large financial advisor firm with $2.25 billion in client assets under management (AUM). The firm is located in Grants Pass, Oregon, a small town in the southwest corner of the state. The firm works with both individual and institutional clients, providing them with a range of financial advisory services from portfolio management to financial planning.

Kingsview is a fee-based firm, which means some of its on-staff advisors can receive commissions from insurance sales, in addition to normal advisory fees. On the flip side, a fee-only firm only receives compensation from the fees that clients pay.

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.
