Situated along the Saluda River in northwestern South Carolina lies Piedmont. The tiny town known for its Southern hospitality and tranquil setting may appeal to seniors looking for a quiet place away from the bustle but still near big-city amenities. Greenville is about 13 miles down the road. Piedmont doesn’t get much snow but gets lots of rain, with pleasant summers and brisk winters the norm.
Seniors may also like Piedmont’s lower-than-average cost of living and the several nice tax breaks they get living in South Carolina. The state doesn’t tax Social Security benefits. Plus, residents aged 65 or older can exclude up to $10,000 of their retirement income and deduct $15,000 from all taxable income. These perks double for joint filers.
With just over 5,400 residents, Piedmont still boasts a sizable population of older adults. About 800 seniors aged 65 or older call the town home. Seniors who benefit from the supportive environment of assisted living pay an average monthly cost of $3,743 in Piedmont. Although it’s slightly more than the state average of $3,612, it’s more than $750 less than the national average of $4,500.
