Retiring in Idaho as a VIP

There is a time and place for everything. From home ownership and all that comes along with it – yardwork, repairs, big-ticket expenses – to a fresh start in a new, low-maintenance home. If that time feels like “now” to you, then retiring in Idaho as an Upside member could be the ideal setting for your next chapter.

Unthink What You Know About Senior Living Apartments in Idaho

Independent senior living usually means choosing from a rather cookie-cutter selection of apartments located within closed, campus-like communities. Retiring in Idaho as an Upside member is worlds apart from this type of experience. That’s because Upside apartments are available in a wide selection of layouts, floorplans, and sizes, making it easy to find a place that truly calls to you. But these apartment units aren’t located within closed senior living communities. They’re in traditional apartment buildings in great neighborhoods, and they’re exclusively reserved for Upside members 55+ and older.

Unlock New Possibilities When Retiring in Idaho

Upside membership is your VIP key to Idaho and all of the cool stuff it offers to its residents. When you join, you’ll get your own Upside Manager. The best way to think of this person is as a close friend who knows your personality, your interests, and can even suggest where to go for your favorite meal. Just one call to your Upside Manager and you’ll have everything you need to know about your next adventure – whether that’s the state’s beautiful park system or one of the many world-class Idaho destinations in Boise and beyond.

Boise is one of those unassuming cities that offers something for literally everyone who knows where to look. You can get your steps in while hiking along the foothills, or see something wild at Zoo Boise. Or, check out a cool public art collection at the museum and spend an afternoon at the Boise Depot – a historic landmark where you’ll also find the stunning Platt Gardens. After you work up an appetite, head over to one of Boise’s beloved local breweries, restaurants, and farmer’s markets for something delicious to fill you up.

All of the Care, None of the Stigma

With Upside+ Powered by TheKey, seniors live in their own apartment in a luxury building, not a sterile facility. But they still have access to support and living assistance from certified on-site care professionals. It’s the perfect solution for seniors who want care and community without the stigma or cost of senior living facilities—and with much more flexibility.

Tax Considerations for Retiring in Idaho

In addition to Idaho’s awesome attractions and resources, retiring in this state also comes with fairly substantial tax benefits. For example, Social Security income is not taxed at all in Idaho and the state tax rate is quite modest at just under six percent.
