State Financial Security Scorecards

Source: National Institute on Retirement Security, 2015

NIRS’ new State Financial Security Scorecards summarize the economic outlook for retirement security in every state. The two-page downloadable State Scorecards are designed to serve as a tool for policymakers to help identify potential areas of focus for state-based policy interventions to improve Americans’ retirement prospects.

Each State Scorecard gauges the relative performance of the fifty states and the District of Columbia in three key areas: anticipated retirement income; major retirement costs like housing and healthcare; and labor market conditions for older workers.
