West Virginia Retirement

Although West Virginia does not usually spring to mind as the retirement capital of the country, it is one of only five US States that have set up a certification program for retirement communities in the state.

This Retire in West Virginia state website offers free literature by mail and information about West Virginia's new certification program. The state has designated these six communities as having great retirement potential:

Greater Morgantown
Lewis County
Nicholas County
Summers County

West Virginia's designation comes after an application process that ensures community viability as a retirement destination:

Designated Retirement Communities, or DRCs, are communities that have undergone a rigorous 12-point application process that ensures that the community does indeed provide the resources and amenities required to be considered as a viable retirement destination.
