Plano is a suburb of Dallas that offers plenty of financial benefits for budget-conscious retirees. Although the city’s cost of living is slightly higher than the national average, residents pay less than usual for health care, transportation and other miscellaneous expenses.

A lack of state income tax can also add up to big savings for the city’s retirees. Texas doesn’t charge tax on any kind of retirement income, including pensions, IRAs, 401(k) plans or Social Security benefits. Assisted living is cheaper than the national average, too, with seniors paying around $4,195 per month.

This guide covers prices for assisted living in cities nearby Plano, rates for other kinds of care and free resources that serve the city’s older adults.
