Houses are a ton of work to maintain, and sometimes we end up with more space than we know what to do with. When that happens it can feel as though we spend more time keeping up with housework than enjoying our homes. And that’s not to mention the financial expense of replacing high-ticket items like furnaces or roofs. This is one reason older adults who are still active consider retirement communities in Massachusetts. We offer many unique apartments in Boston, Quincy, Marlboro, Foxboro, and Lawrence so you can choose from a huge selection of sizes and layouts. Another reason retiring in Massachusetts appeals to many retirees is the convenient access to the best of what these cities have to offer. Plus, as an Upside member, you can also get a personal Upside Manager to help keep you connected with your city. Let’s explore.
While not as advantageous as several other states, retirement communities in Massachusetts are still rather tax-friendly for retirees. For example, Massachusetts fully exempts Social Security retirement benefits. However, most other forms of retirement income are subject to taxation.
From bustling cityscapes to scenic parks, Massachusetts offers four seasons of indoor and outdoor opportunities to bask in the natural splendor of your surroundings or soak in awe-inspiring cultural experiences. Here are some of the highlights:
