Top 10 Retirement Spots for Job Seekers

US News & World Report recently took a look at the best cities for job-seeking retirees and came up with a top ten list that’s sure to find some interest. As retirement accounts dwindle, the prospect of going back to work isn’t appealing but sometimes a necessary step. US News took a look at a bunch of factors including employment growth, the unemployment rate, the cost of housing, cost of living, and availability of high quality health care.

Here’s their list:

  • Bellevue, Wash.
  • Bismarck, N.D.
  • Charleston, W.Va.
  • Charlottesville, Va.
  • Ithaca, N.Y.
  • Huntsville, Ala.
  • Lubbock, Texas
  • Oklahoma City, Okla.
  • Rochester, Minn.
  • State College, Pa.

You can read their logic here but I was surprised to see so many college towns.
