Social Security Snapshot


Retirees flock to Nevada for its scenic desert landscape, the hot, dry weather, and for the bright lights of Las Vegas. Here the living is easy, offering residents a low-key lifestyle, where neighbors are friendly and living costs are relatively low. But a word of caution: Nevada's property taxes are among the highest in the country, and it is one of just a handful of states with an inheritance tax. Before you settle in the “Silver State,” make sure you reap all of the Social Security income and benefits you are entitled to. A Social Security Advisor who is a Registered Social Security Analyst will show you how.

Social Security for Nevada residents — here’s what you can expect:

  • Retirement benefits
  • Benefits for disabled workers and their dependents
  • Benefits to the families of deceased workers

You may also be entitled to:

  • Supplemental Security Income program (SSI) – a needs-based program for people ages 65+ and people with disabilities, regardless of age.
  • Assistance if you are a Medicare beneficiary with limited income to apply for extra help with the cost of prescription drugs (Medicare Prescription Drug Program.)

Social Security: It’s partially taxed in Nevada

While the IRS may tax you on up to 85% of on Social Security benefits, all Social Security income is partially taxed on your Nevada state income tax return.

What you need to know as a Nevada retiree:

  • Withdrawals from retirement accounts are fully taxed.
  • Wages are taxed at normal rates.
  • Public and private pension income are fully taxed.
