According to recent reports, $1 million will only last a 65-year-old retiree living in Washington state 21 years and one month, according to data published on CNBC.

Washington state ranks 37th when it comes to stretching out $1 million. That’s 37th worst in a state with annual expenditures of more than $40,000.

Hawaii ranks the worst, with annual expenditures at more than $80,000.

Mississippi is the No. 1 state to live in to stretch $1 million. It will last a retiree nearly 26.5 years.

KIRO Radio’s John Curley suggests people at retirement age with that amount of money move to Alabama. After a recent online search, he found that lakefront properties come cheap.

Alabama ranks as the ninth best place to stretch $1 million.
