(c) copyright citizenside.com New research into the wellbeing of the country s pensioners shows there is a lot to consider when it comes to deciding where best to spend your old age with some places better than others when you decide to retire.

Monmouthshire Many people may have no choice but to stay where they already live, but others move to somewhere they love, perhaps have holidayed, or to be near to children and grandchildren who have already settled. Suffolk, with its lovely countryside peppered with peaceful, pretty picture-postcard villages, its big skies and wonderful and varied coastline, has become increasingly popular as a destination for those retiring from busy lives and looking for a more relaxing lifestyle and one of the top ten places nationally for retirement. As well as low crime rates compared with many other parts of the country and especially the urban conurbations healthcare is good, and there is plenty for people to do with a huge variety of activities and many different clubs, sports and past-times catered for in communities big and small. According to a new survey called a pensioner wellbeing index compiled by Prudential, Suffolk comes out well on many of these categories and is the ninth best place to retire to for those looking to enjoy a long, healthy and safe retirement. Devon came out top of the league table in the survey, which used census data and results from the insurance giant s own retirement research to rank the top 20 counties in England and Wales. Prudential found that among people retiring in 2015, more than one third 36% – of those in the South West expect to be able to afford to leave an inheritance to their families. This was well above the UK average of 29%. Dorset was second in the league table and Norfolk and Powys joint third. Suffolk has around 153,000 people over 65 years old in its population of 730,000, with the number of people over 85 set to double by 2031. Southwold – a great place to retire to. Picture by Janice Poulson. Coastal areas are particularly popular for retirement 19.19% of the population of Suffolk Coastal is over 65, and 18.8% in Waveney. Beccles has the highest amount of retired people in Suffolk at 27%, while Felixstowe 26% and Lowestoft 24%. The county scored better than the national average in all categories examined by Prudential, achieving a high wellbeing score. Statistics released from the survey show men living in Suffolk can on average expect to live 84 and women to the age of 86. There are 58.8 healthcare workers per 1,000 people, while the crime rate is respectfully low at 48.7 crimes per 1,000 people. Sharron Cozens, chief executive of Age UK Suffolk, said: I think Suffolk has got absolutely everything going for it for retired people especially for quality of life and healthy lifestyles. There is plenty of outdoor living to enjoy, forests, walks, wonderful villages and so much history. There is increasing longevity and many people are already retiring to Suffolk and while that brings many bonuses for our county, there are issues we need to be aware of including the care of our older population and we are contuinuing to work hard here at Age UK Suffolk to support and provide the services our older population need now and will need in the years ahead. The charity employs over 400 staff and has over 700 volunteers in its services and activities around the county involved in support for families, including those needing dementia care, befriending services, day services and lunch clubs, and other activities. Framlingham Vince Smith Hughes, retirement income expert at Prudential, said that the recently-introduced pension freedoms may encourage more people to relocate to somewhere that better suits their needs when they retire. The freedoms give people aged 55 and over with a defined contribution (DC) pension more flexibility to access their money how they wish, subject to tax. Mr Smith Hughes said: For people hoping to have the most comfortable lifestyle in retirement the best approach remains to save as much as possible as early as possible during your working life – but while being financially secure in retirement shouldn t be overlooked, issues such as safety, security and health play an important part in a pensioner s overall quality of life. He said that people looking to take up the new retirement freedoms should make the most of the Government s free Pension Wise guidance service. References ^ Richard Cornwell (www.ipswichstar.co.uk)
