Tips on Finding the Right Financial Advisor 

  • Compare advisors before choosing one. Their expertise, fees and other crucial factors can vary greatly. To help you narrow the field, we created a financial advisor matching tool. It recommends up to three advisors in your area after you answer some simple questions about your financial situation and goals. 
  • When evaluating advisors, make sure you ask about their certifications. They’re not required to have any in order to work in the industry. So the ones who went to the effort of gaining one have specialized training. If they’re certified financial planners (CFPs), they may also have to follow higher fiduciary standards. This means they must provide financial planning advice solely in your best interest or face strict sanctions.  

How Many Years $1 Million 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 To determine how long a $1 million nest egg would cover retirement costs in cities across America, we analyzed data on average expenditures for seniors, cost of living and investment returns.

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%. This reflects the typical return on a conservative investment portfolio. 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.
