There is a reason why most full-timers choose Texas, South Dakota or Florida for their domicile state.

Unless you're under 65, then the first 2 are out.

Please explain, how does being under 65 hurt you in SD and TX?


Someone under 65 needs health insurance that will travel with them from state-to-state. SD & TX do not have that. FL currently does, but that could change as it seems to be ever changing each year.

All plans that I have seen have "emergency" provisions so that if you are on vacation you are covered, at least in part. How often does everyone need to see a physician? We always did loops so that every year we were back to see our primary care physician, get our check ups, labs, adjust meds if necessary, then off we would go. Maybe 4 times in 9 years did we use an urgent care type facility for a short term problem. At 9 years, we found that we needed more than a couple of weeks to get all medical check ups done and changed our primary care physician to Arizona where we spend the winter. Of course we are now on Medicare. But if you are so ill the you can't do without see a physician every few weeks, maybe fulltiming isn't for you.

We've been retired for 15 years and "taxes" is the least of our expenses here in California. Other ever-increasing living expenses are eating as alive way faster than taxes.

A better retirement expense location criteria might be "what state(s) has(have) the lowest cost of living for everyone"?

We chose SD and have been legal residents for over 12 years. We winter in Mesa
AZ for six months and travel for six months. Never had a problem with our
mail service in Sioux Falls. SD is a very friendly "full-timer" state.
