With almost 30 percent of all nonretired adults having no retirement savings or pension, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2018’s Best & Worst States to Retire.

To help retirees find a safe, enjoyable and wallet-friendly place to call home, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 41 key metrics. The data set ranges from adjusted cost of living to weather to quality of public hospitals.
