Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fulton
- Maryland seniors pay state income tax on private pension income, and there is a tax deduction for government pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts. Social Security benefits are not taxed at the state level in Maryland, which may leave more money for assisted living expenses in Fulton.

- The Fulton area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Columbia.
Summers in Fulton last from late May until the middle of September and tend to be warm and humid with highs in the mid-80s.

- Fulton is an expensive place to live, even by Maryland's standards. The overall cost of living here is about 82% higher than the national average and over 50% higher than the statewide average. This may be a consideration for seniors who have limited retirement budgets.
