Modesto’s general cost of living may be about 14% higher than the U.S. average, but it’s 36% lower than California’s index. This is because of the city’s high housing costs, which are 30% over the nationwide figure, but basic goods and health care costs are only slightly above average. Retirees may consider assisted living in Modesto as its estimated monthly cost of $4,000 per month is both below the Golden State and national averages.

The affordable cost of assisted living in Modesto, as well as California’s exemption on Social Security benefits, may help compensate for the full taxation on pensions and retirement account withdrawals.
