Best states for retirement

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- If you are like many, you may be daydreaming about the day you can retire, and where you will live.

Now, a new study by Bankrate.com ranks the best states for retirees based on several factors including, cost of living, taxes, health care quality, weather, crime, culture, and well-being.

The best state to retire in is South Dakota according to the study, followed by Utah, Idaho, New Hampshire and the ever-popular retirement haven, Florida.

Missouri ranked 15th, Kentucky was 30th, and Illinois ranked toward the end of the list at 44.

New York, meanwhile, makes life hardest on those who recently escaped the daily grind, coming in dead last at 50.
