Costs of senior apartments in the Miami area

Senior apartments are the most affordable senior living option in Miami because they don’t offer care services like assisted living or memory care facilities. Senior apartments provide housing and may feature some additional amenities, such as a pool, while assisted living or memory care offers housing, amenities, meals, housekeeping, and care services.

While senior apartments tend to be a low-cost option for active people over 55, Miami is considered a higher cost of living area. A one-bedroom senior apartment in Miami costs $2,091 a month on average. Rent in Miami is about 47% higher than the national average.[01] Some of the expenses of living in Miami can be offset by Florida’s lack of income tax. Florida also doesn’t tax Social Security benefits.

How people pay for senior apartments in Miami

Most seniors use their income or savings to pay for a senior apartment. Unlike assisted living, memory care, or skilled nursing care, senior apartments don’t offer care services and can’t be paid for using Medicaid or Medicare. However, some seniors can use veterans benefits to pay for their senior apartment, or pay for care in their residence with Medicaid and Medicare.

Read on to learn how to pay for a senior apartment in Miami and how to use veterans benefits, Medicaid, and Medicare to your advantage.

Private pay methods

Personal income and savings are the primary ways most people pay for a senior apartment. However, there are other strategies to afford a senior apartment, such as using Social Security benefits, pensions, and investment returns. Learn how to use these and other private payment strategies to keep your Miami senior apartment within reach.

VA benefits for senior apartments in Miami
6852

Number of veterans who live in Miami

About 53% of Miami veterans are over 55.

Florida has the third-highest population of veterans in the United States. While many veterans choose to live in Jacksonville, veterans living in Miami have access to a well-organized support system through the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs and other local programs. And senior Miami veterans can easily find community, as most veterans in Miami are over 55.

Using veterans benefits to pay for a senior apartment

The Aid and Attendance benefit is one of the more generous veterans benefits available. If you’re eligible for this benefit, you can use it to pay for anything that improves your quality of life, including monthly rent for a senior apartment. Eligibility for the Aid and Attendance benefit depends on a number of variables, so contact a veterans benefits counselor before applying.

Veterans benefits counseling in Miami

Applying for veterans benefits can be confusing. To help, we’ve compiled a list of veterans benefits counselors in Miami. These experts can help veterans and their family members apply for and understand their benefits. Contact these experts in and around Miami with any veterans benefits questions.

Medicaid and Medicare

Neither Medicare nor Medicaid will cover the rent of a senior apartment in Miami. Both programs cover health-related expenses, and senior apartments don’t provide any care services covered by either program. However, it’s still important to understand what Medicaid and Medicare do and don’t cover so you can make informed decisions, regardless of where you’re living.

Florida Medicaid is a state-run health insurance program

Florida Medicaid provides health insurance to low-income state residents. The state’s Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) runs Florida Medicaid and offers two different insurance programs:

  • Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) program. The MMA program is the most widely used Florida Medicaid program. It covers general health care expenses, such as hospital care, prescription drugs, immunizations, and hospitalization. The MMA program also covers transportation to and from certain appointments.
  • Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care (SMMC LTC) program. The SMMC LTC program covers both general health care expenses and long-term care services, such as personal care and monthly fees at an assisted living or skilled nursing facility. It may also cover some home care services. While the SMMC LTC program will cover long-term care, it won’t cover the rent of a senior apartment.
Florida Medicaid eligibility

Florida Medicaid is available to people who:

  • Are residents of Florida
  • Require health care services
  • Make less than $18,075 a year before taxes, as of 2023 (this number is adjusted annually)

Applicants must also meet at least one of the following requirements:

  • Be 65 years or older
  • Have a dependent
  • Have severe vision impairment
  • Have a disability
  • Be pregnant
Medicare is a federal health insurance program for seniors

Medicare is run by the federal government and is for people over 65 years of age. If you’ve paid your Medicare taxes (or are married to someone who has) and are over 65, you’re eligible for Medicare coverage. Seniors are expected to pay a premium for Medicare insurance, as is common with other health insurance programs.

Medicare covers short-term and medically necessary health care expenses

Medicare is specific about what it does and doesn’t cover. In general, Medicare covers only short-term care and medically necessary health care expenses. For example, Medicare will cover the entire cost — including meals and all care services — of a short-term hospital stay for up to 20 days.

Whether or not a procedure, test, item, or medication is medically necessary depends on the individual. What’s medically necessary for one person may not be for another. Typically, your physician and a Medicare representative decide what services and resources are medically necessary. You can get a sense of what Medicare covers on the Medicare coverage portal.

Medicare Savings Programs can help cover your premiums

Miami seniors can use Medicare Savings Programs to cover some of their premiums. Seniors can find and sign up for these programs on the federal Medicare website. These programs are income-dependent, and seniors typically need to make under $1,549 a month in pretax income to be eligible, although this number is adjusted annually.

Medicaid and Medicare benefits counseling for Miami seniors

Local to Miami is the Alliance for Aging, Inc., which offers benefits counseling and support to local seniors. Another good resource is the Department of Elder Affairs for the State of Florida. Miami’s local SHINE program (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders), is another free program that provides benefits counseling through trained volunteers. All of these programs offer Medicaid and Medicare benefits counseling at no cost to seniors.

Public assistance

Finding affordable housing can be difficult in Miami, where the cost of living is 21% higher than the national average.[01] Seniors who need help finding a place to live, paying rent, or getting proper nutrition can access a few different safety nets throughout Miami-Dade County.

Housing assistance in Miami-Dade County

Seniors seeking to use Section 8 housing vouchers to pay for their senior apartment should be aware that the vouchers only apply to certain Section 8-eligible housing developments. Miami-Dade County’s Section 8 program offers affordable housing to low- and very low-income people. There’s currently a waiting list to receive an affordable housing voucher. Where you place on the list is determined by age, disability, household size, and income.

Registration to get on the waiting list is occasionally closed. Open registration dates are published in the following newspapers: The Miami Herald, The Miami Times, Diario Las Americas, and Le Floridien.

Rent assistance in Miami-Dade County

The City of Miami runs an Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program. This program was open as of June 2023 and reviewing applications. Priority is determined by income, age, disability, and household size. You can begin the application process by calling 305-330-1508.

Food assistance in Miami-Dade County

Meals on Wheels is the primary food assistance program for seniors in Miami. Homebound seniors who are at least 60 years of age can receive free meals from their home, or seniors can opt to pick up their meals at senior centers throughout Miami. You can find locations and information about signing up at the Meals on Wheels webpage.

Social Security benefits for Miami seniors

Some Social Security benefits can be used to pay for rent. While Social Security benefits likely won’t cover the entire cost of a senior apartment in Miami, they can help. Seniors are eligible for Social Security based on a number of factors, such as work credits and having a disability.

One of the easiest ways to determine which Social Security benefits you’re eligible for is to take an eligibility quiz. You can also read the quick review of common Social Security benefits below.

  • Social Security Retirement benefit (SSR). This benefit is for seniors who have paid Social Security taxes for more than 10 years. You can no longer apply for this benefit once you’re over 70.
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). This benefit is for people who have paid their Social Security taxes for more than 10 years and have a qualifying disability.
  • Social Security Survivor’s Pension. This benefit is for surviving spouses of seniors who have paid their Social Security taxes.

Understand FL laws and regulations for senior apartments

Senior apartments in Florida follow the same laws and regulations as other apartment complexes. In general, senior apartments don’t need to follow any special regulations the way assisted living, memory care, or skilled nursing facilities do.

The one difference between senior apartments and other apartment complexes is that senior apartments often have age restrictions. In Miami, the age restriction is typically around 55. Some senior apartments may still allow younger residents, as long as they live with a resident who meets the age requirement.

You enter into a tenant-landlord relationship in a senior apartment

When you live in one of Miami’s senior apartments, you are a tenant and the apartment complex is your landlord. Residents need to follow the same guidelines and regulations as other tenants, such as the following:

  • Keep all living areas clean and tidy
  • Don’t knowingly alter the dwelling without permission from the landlord
  • Pay rent on time
  • Follow community guidelines, such as quiet hours and picking up after a pet

Senior apartments follow basic quality of life laws

Senior apartment complexes in Miami are required by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to do the following:

  • Keep all living areas up to safety codes and in a clean condition
  • Provide hot water, gas, and electricity
  • Offer heat in the winter
  • Provide extermination services
  • Complete all repairs and maintenance
  • Give residents locks and keys prior to move-in
  • Return the resident’s security deposit within 15 days of the resident vacating

Disputes between a senior and their senior apartment complex in Miami

The state of Florida mediates all tenant and landlord disputes through the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. If residents feel that a senior apartment complex has violated their quality of life or treated them unfairly, seniors should give the complex a written notice and give the landlord time to respond before taking any legal action. If the problem is serious, residents should consider speaking with a lawyer familiar with local tenant-landlord law or a housing association.

Living in a Miami senior apartment with a disability

Many seniors with a disability choose to live independently in a senior apartment instead of in an assisted living facility. Senior apartments don’t offer care services, but they must follow the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA prevents any senior apartment from barring a resident due to a disability. Individual apartments don’t need to be ADA compliant, but all public areas of the apartment complex, such as pools and lobbies, need to be accessible to people with disabilities.

Seniors with disabilities are also allowed to alter the apartment to make it more accessible, according to the Fair Housing Act. Service animals are permitted in all public areas of senior apartment complexes.

COVID-19 regulations for Miami senior apartments

Miami-Dade County remains dedicated to stopping the spread of COVID-19 amongst senior residents. Senior apartments in Miami don’t follow any special regulations to prevent COVID-19 because they don’t offer health or personal care services.

Miami-Dade County provides free COVID-19 testing and vaccinations for all county residents. These are available either through at-home testing kits or in pharmacies and health care centers throughout the county. You can find press releases and updated case and vaccine data on Miami-Dade County’s Coronavirus webpage.

What to expect from senior apartments in Miami

Miami’s swanky charm has long called to seniors looking for a retirement destination. While Miami is no longer the low-cost-of-living haven it once was, there’s still a long list of reasons why seniors choose Miami over other, less expensive cities. Gorgeous weather and white sand beaches aside, Miami’s cultural riches are another big draw.

Stunning art deco architecture, strong Latin culture, and the sense of being in the heart of it all make Miami a mainstay for active seniors. Many seniors also appreciate Florida’s lack of income tax and generous state Medicaid plan.

Senior apartments or independent living communities in Miami

Active seniors in Miami can choose between living in a home, a senior apartment, or an independent living community. A Place for Mom partners with more independent living communities than senior apartments in Miami, and in general, independent living communities are more popular.[03] Unlike senior apartments, independent living communities offer meal plans, daily activities, classes, and housekeeping services. They also tend to lump all monthly fees, including utilities, into one monthly payment.

If you’re looking for a hassle-free, resort-like retirement community that allows you to keep your autonomy, consider Miami’s independent living communities. If you’re looking for a simple apartment without the added amenity or housekeeping expenses, Miami’s senior apartments may be a better fit.

Senior apartments in Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, and Highland Beach

In general, the cities north of Miami tend to have a lower cost of living. Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, and Highland Beach all offer senior apartments at lower prices than in Miami. Highland Beach is a one hour drive from Miami, and about 76% of the town’s population is over 55.
