Study Finds How Long $1 Million Lasts for Retirees in Roanoke


A million-dollar nest egg for retirement sounds good, right? For any prospective retiree it can be a great start, a goal, or an aspirational figure you expect to take you comfortably through your retirement years. However, that million-dollar retirement fund will get you a lot further in some cities than it will in others. For the second year, SmartAsset has released a study to determine where $1M lasts the longest. The study factored in expenses for housing, food, healthcare, utilities and more to determine where $1 million lasts the longest in Virginia for retirees.
