Senior Financial Overview

View our Tennessee financial data below to learn about the income, wealth and costs incurred of those seniors living in the community.

The median household income for seniors in Tennessee is $32,702 Source: Census.gov ACS

Annual Income for Senior Households

46% of senior households in Tennessee earn less than $30,000 per year, while 9% earn more than $100K/year


Only those where the head of household is 65 or over are included. As an example, an elderly widow and her children's income would be counted if her children choose to live with her. However, if she chooses to live with her children, neither would be counted.

Also, keep in mind the distinction between household and individual income. A married couple over the age of 65 that is still working and earning $30,000 per year each would have a household income of $60,000.

The average Social Security income per household receiving the benefit in Tennessee is $16,841 Source: Census.gov ACS
