In These States, Retirees Risk Losing Some of Their Social Security


Social Security benefits support seniors all throughout the U.S. — but in some states, they may be at risk.

Specifically, ten states tax Social Security benefits. When combined with federal taxes, this cost can take a big chunk out of the retirement benefits seniors have already paid into and paid taxes on.

While some states offer income restrictions so that eligible seniors don’t have to pay, this isn’t offered for everyone. It’s possible to avoid federal taxes on retirement benefits as well depending on your provisional income — but once again, not all seniors will qualify for this exemption.
