Some names will be familiar. Jeff Bezos in Washington (worth an estimated $117.1 billion), Warren Buffett in Nebraska ($89.6 billion), Mike Bloomberg in New York ($58.4 billion), and Mark Zuckerberg in California ($81.9 billion).
While he’s the second-richest person in the world, Bill Gates and his $108 billion were kept off the map by fellow Washington state billionaire Bezos.
Likewise, a gaggle of uber-wealthy Californians, including Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin and Oracle’s Larry Ellison, couldn’t topple Facebook’s Zuckerberg.
These numbers are fluid, so if you need up-to-the-minute rankings of billionaires for some reason, Forbes has you covered with Real Time Billionaires.
Even if you’re not your state’s richest person (there’s always next year!), you’re probably looking forward to retirement. Maybe that means traveling the country in an RV, or trying your hand at international house sitting. To estimate your future Social Security income, give our Social Security Calculator a whirl.
