Guide to Independent Living in Wisconsin

Wisconsin is a popular choice for independent living among older adults. Of the state’s nearly 6 million residents, 17.5% are seniors aged 65 and over. Wisconsin welcomes seniors with a very positive tax environment, including no taxation on Social Security and certain government pensions. Other kinds of retirement income, such as payments from a 401(k) or IRA, are taxed at a relatively low level between 3.54 and 7.65%.

Apart from the reasonable cost of independent living in Wisconsin, active seniors have plenty to do in their free time. The mild summers that Wisconsin enjoys encourage an outdoors lifestyle, while 55+ communities in almost every town host senior dinners, dances and other community events. A high percentage of doctors and medical centers that accept Medicare have contributed to the somewhat higher-than-average senior life expectancy in Wisconsin.
