Georgia gets mixed results in retirement stats

A new report on retirement in the country gives Georgia mixed results.

The report from LPL Research gives our state an overall grade of C, although the state's rankings vary depending on several factors.

From a holistic standpoint, though, Georgia does not do particularly well, scoring D's in both health-related categories.

The report finds Georgia doesn't have enough doctors, especially gerontologists, dentists, and mental health specialists.

The AJC says the state ranks 38th in the country in overall wellness.

Georgia also ranks among the lowest in the country in uninsured residents.

The numbers aren't all bad for the state, though.

Georgia ranks eighth in the country for financial benefits.

Those benefits include a low cost of living, high median household income, and low tax burden. Costs are also low in Georgia for home health aides.

The state gets a ‘B’ for nursing home costs.
