From CNBC – May 30, 2019
New Jersey, it seems, is the last place where people want to spend their golden years.
Almost 67% of all New Jersey moves were outbound last year, according to a survey from United Van Lines.
The relocation company polled 26,998 of its customers who moved last year, through Nov. 30.
A third of people who left New Jersey also cited retirement as a primary reason for their decision to pack up and go.
In all, United logged 4,430 total shipments in the Garden State. Of these, 2,959 were sent out of state.
Maine and Connecticut round out the top three states people are moving away from due to retirement, the moving service found.
On the other hand, the Sun Belt is a hot destination for those entering their golden years.
More than 4 in 10 people who moved to New Mexico in 2018 said retirement was a top reason for relocating.
Florida came in second, and Arizona followed in third, United Van Lines found.
