Orange is considered an expensive city with a general cost of living that’s 64% greater than the U.S. median and 14% more than California’s. This is largely because of steep housing prices nearly three times the national average. Orange’s health care costs are 4% lower than the U.S. average, and assisted living, at $5,250 per month, is on par with the Los Angeles and California figures.

Aside from Orange’s high living costs, the State of California fully taxes pensions and retirement account withdrawals but exempts Social Security benefits. For seniors in need of assistance with long-term care, the Orange Senior Center’s case management team connects eligible residents to appropriate social services, financial assistance programs and other available resources.
