Coronavirus has hit America’s senior population especially hard in terms of health, but the pandemic has also highlighted issues that some people 65-and-older already face with regard to their finances.
Balancing medical bills on top of basic expenses for food and shelter — in addition to making sure one has enough retirement savings — can be a challenge. That’s why SmartAsset decided to take a look at where in the U.S. seniors are most and least financially secure.
To find the cities where seniors are most and least financially secure, we examined data for the 100 cities with the largest 65-and-older population across seven metrics.
For details on our data sources and how we found our final rankings, check out the data and methodology next. That is followed by the cities where seniors are most financially secure, and finally the cities where seniors are least financially secure.
