A new list of preferred cities by military retirees places Roseville among the very top in the nation.
The city that’s got it all is both a great place to raise a family and enjoy retirement life. Residents fall in love with the city’s charm and history, along with its high-performing schools, great places for fun, food and shopping and its thriving neighborhoods and businesses.
Earlier this month, as we saluted the brave men and women who wear the uniform, Smartasset.com released its ranking of American cities most beloved by military retirees.
The survey compared 200 large cities across the United States and measured three broad categories to rank which ones cater the most to the nation’s military retirees.
Roseville finished as eighth overall and fifth in military retirement friendliness in the nation.
About three-and-a-half percent of Roseville’s population is made up of veterans who are at least 65 years old. Nationally, that’s in the top 20.
Military friendliness was measured by taking a look at the percentage of population who are veterans age 65 and above. As part of the analysis, senior tax burden entered into the equation.
The list also answered how accommodating cities were toward the group. Cities with more VA health facilities, benefits administration services and similar resources move up on the list.
The third component is the city’s economic environment. Median veteran income, unemployment rate and other income-qualifying criteria were used for the ranking segment.
More and more, America’s retired military personnel turn to cities like Roseville when it’s time to enter post-service life.
Only one other California city finished in the top 10 along with Roseville.
