Any state that borders Mexico.
Those states are being swamped with uneducated lawless illegals.
These sites and the data they come up with makes no since. Tell me how can Kentucky be one of the worst states than on another posting it’s one of the best? Who is paying who to write this crap? This website must wake up one day and say, the obituaries are overflowing in newspapers and we need to send out red flag to deter the retirees to move here.
10 worst states for retirement
No. 10: Kentucky
Kentucky's low cost of living is easy on the budget, and it's of course a basketball lover's dream.
The biggest problem for Kentucky residents is the state's health care system and low wellness scores.
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, or AHRQ, gave Kentucky's health care system its fifth-lowest score in the nation as part of its most recent quality report. The agency, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, has found numerous issues with Kentucky's health care. It noted, for example, especially high rates of adults who didn't receive timely care even though they needed it "right away" for an illness or injury.
Gallup-Healthways, which tracks emotional and physical well-being as part of an extensive national survey, gave Kentucky its second-lowest score behind West Virginia.

10 best states for retirement
No. 4: Kentucky
One of the strongest benefits that Kentucky offers retirees is an extremely low cost of living. The Council for Community and Economic Research, or CCER, which collects data on the relative costs of groceries, housing, utilities, transportation and health care in communities across the U.S., found that retirees in Kentucky are paying less than many of their counterparts across the country.
Bankrate, which analyzed CCER's data, found that Kentucky boasts the fifth-lowest cost of living in the nation.
The Bluegrass State also has warmer-than-average temperatures and a crime rate that's slightly lower than average.

Just because people don't take care of themselves in a certain state does not mean that you can't take care of yourself - this article completely stupid.
Maryland most definitely deserves to be on this list. They tax us to death and give us nothing to show for it. You can buy a house in other states for what you pay for a one bedroom condo in this miserable state. Also, look out for the potholes that our tax dollars don't seem to cover, but you would also need to enjoy living in a sardine can...too many people! If you want to be up close and personal to the corruption in D.C this just might be the place for you! Saving my money and getting out of here ASAP. You don't need to be retired for this to be one of the worst states to live in!!!!
The photo is deceiving!
The current crisis on the southern border, involving tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, has now become a concern for Michiganders who live in a rural community with less than 3,000 people.
Wolverine Human Services, a social services agency which typically helps needy Michigan children, is in the process of securing a contract and negotiating with the Office of Refugee Resettlement to bring between 60-120 male illegal immigrants, between the ages of 12-17, to the small city of Vassar without any input from residents of the community.
About 100 concerned citizens, some bearing signs, gathered outside the Vassar City Hall last night to let public officials know what they think.
GUESS THAT ONE IS OUT !
First off...the Wellness Survey should have no bearing on the criteria as it is based primarily on an individuals lifestyle choice. You do not have to eat unhealthy foods...it is your choice, you do not have to smoke...it is an individual choice. So having someone else determine what is good or bad for you should have no bearing on the ratings.
Second, cost of living is NOT NECESSARILY a choice...you are retired, mostly fixed income. 56% of all retirees within the next five years will have Social Security as their primary income (50% or more of the total household income). Over 30% Social Security will be their only income. Therefore, for the majority of retirees...cost of living is the largest determining factor.
Third...is the weather
I've lived in 11 states and 3 countries...visisted SEVERAL more!
Not sure why anyone would say Florida is a bad place to retire? Seems like tens of millions of people are wrong lol VERY LOW CRIME in small areas outside of biggers cities. Best fishing in the country, best weather minus Southern CA. and Hawaii, no state taxes, low cost of living, amazing healthcare and it simply the best place to call it quits lol
States I've lived:
NC, SC, GA, VA, TN, KY, MI, CO, AL, TX, FL
Germany, Puerto Rico, Nova Scotia (Canada)
