OKC ranked among Best Places for Military Retirement

USAA and Military.com listed Oklahoma City as one of the top 10 "Best Places for Military Retirement."

It was the first survey of military retirement locations commissioned by USAA and Military.com.

Oklahoma City ranked second on the "Overall Top 10 List" and first on two other lists, including the "Top 10 Places to Retire in a Large Metro Area" and "Top 10 Military Towns."

"We welcome military veterans to Oklahoma City with open arms," said Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett. "Our unemployment rate is among the lowest in the country, which makes Oklahoma City the perfect place to begin an encore career."

There are 2 million military retirees; 28 percent are officers and 72 percent are enlisted, according to the report. Generally, military retirees retire relatively early in life with an average age of 42 for enlisted service members and 46 for officers.

"Most military members face two retirements - one from a military career and one from a civilian career," said Kevin O'Fee, assistant vice president of retirement strategies at USAA. "The list gives veterans a head start on planning both the second and third acts of their lives, which likely involves a new community, a new home and a new financial plan."
