Many retired teachers head for sunnier destinations like Arizona or Florida … some head to states with lower tax burdens like South Dakota or Wyoming in order to make the best of their retirement income. Large numbers are moving beyond U.S. borders for their later years and are discovering quite a few low-cost countries looking to attract retirees from abroad. The retirees who have relocated to these places are enjoying a boost to their spending power.
