Is there any chance that there are jobs in the area that would provide benefits?

Perhaps folks with positive ACA interaction can PM ValeriJo rather than discuss here; or suggest here that she contact you by PM?
You brought it up! Plus it's germane to the conversation since OP is unfamiliar with it yet is looking for health care when they move.

I say life is too short. Do it ASAP. But... not without the job. Keep looking. They are few & far between depending on your skills. The hospitals always have jobs from dietary, secretary, maintenance , stocking units, housekeeping, to medical jobs.They are not all benefitted and you have to keep applying til you get hired. It took me few years but the lifestyle was worth it.

Publix provides benefits to its employees. They even announced last week that they would provide benefits to spouses in same-sex marriages.

I also quickly found a job in my field with benefits ( dental) but The Villages also have jobs. They don't pay great but the full time jobs have good health insurance. Go to careersinthevillages.com. You will have plenty of company with folks working just for insurance!

Is there any chance that there are jobs in the area that would provide benefits? Doesn't need to pay a lot, decent pay and mainly the benefits?

Any type of industrial employment down there?

Any ideas?
What type of work do you do now? There are plenty of jobs that provide benefits here. The district offers full-time jobs with benefits. There are jobs in the medical profession, jobs in the educational field, corrections; the list goes on and on. It largely depends on what you are interested in doing and what you are trained to do and/or willing to do.

Try the lawn, pest control company called Massey. They recently advertised jobs that come with benefits. Also try Citizens Bank here in the villages. They offer full time jobs with bennys. Good luck and welcome

My suggestion is if you have a good job continue on as long as viable.

I visited the villages 10 years ago and bought a patio villa. I wasn't ready to retire but felt it was a great business opportunity. (Baby Boomer demand and finite land availability). I subsequently put the house on the rental program and managed to rent nearly every month.

When I was ready to retire I had a home in the Villages . After living in the villa for a month, we decided to sell and buy a larger home. In THREE days the house was sold.

Since I bought 10 years ago the squares have tripled (Lake Sumter & Brownwood) and the community has enjoyed robust growth.

Publix gives health care to all of their employees after attaining 1500 hours in a year's time.

Thanks for all the great responses. We both are currently working full time and get benefits through our employers. We have few years yet.

Since I am several years older than my husband, I would get Medicare benefits but he would have to pay for his until he turns 65. Thinking there might be a possibility of him finding a job down there once I retire.

You've given me a glimmer of hope.

Of course you have (more than) a glimmer of Hope! Keep an open mind, positive attitude and "think outside the box" .
