Retirement tip: A condo in Boca is a better bet than a dacha on the Black Sea.

The United States comes in eighth out of 91 countries in the Global Age Watch Index 2013. The report uses income security, health status, employment and educational opportunities and the “enabling environment” — social connections, physical safety, civic freedom, public transportation — to rank the best and worst places to live for those older than 65.

Russia tanks in the 78th spot.

The best:

  1. Sweden
  2. Norway
  3. Germany
  4. Netherlands
  5. Canada
  6. Switzerland
  7. New Zealand
  8. U.S.
  9. Iceland
  10. Japan

The worst: Pakistan, Tanzania and Afghanistan.
