I’m 61 years old and am living alone now since mother died. My sister and her family live in the Washington DC area.
The cost of living is much higher there, and I would be making the same income from Social Security Disability. An example, the minimum Uber ride here is $7.80. In DC it’s $11.00. The market value of the apartment I currently live in is $750.00, but in DC the minimum is something like $1,500.00.
It would be nice if I lived near my sister, but I can’t beat the cost of living in Arkansas. I think I’m going to stay where I’m at.
