California is a horrible place to be financially. yes, the weather is supposed to "make up for it", but at some point the sunshine only does so much to dampen the realization that I live in a highly taxed tax and that I can save much less here because of the high cost of living as well. that means we have to work much longer to save the same amount we could have saved had we lived elsewhere and therefore, retire later than we otherwise could retire.

Every time when I see the "worst" of anything list, I just expect California to be on that list and unfortunately I'm usually right I don't even bother looking at the list for CEO magazine's "worst state to do business" anymore. CA has been dead last 4 years running.

We're here because my spouse is employed here and has been with the same employer for 17 years. We're counting on his being able to retire with the company - he's in his early 40s. Since we're aiming for age-55 retirement for him - now is not the time to start looking at out of state opportunities in his (very narrow niche) field.

I feel like I have this uneasy "love/hate" relationship with the state of California. "Fortunately", I used to live in New York State, which according to some of the posts is its own planet so maybe that's why I'm semi-used to California being somewhat the same too.

The following states are the worst 10 states for retirement:
IL, CA, NY, RI, NJ, OH, WI, MS, CN and NV

What do you think ? Agree or disagree ? Any comment ?
There is no CN, it's CT for Connecticut.
