Maryland is, unfortunately, more expensive than the national average on all fronts. Overall, it ranks nearly 30 points above the national average. Your paycheck will take less of a hit from utilities and groceries, but you will be paying a lot for housing, over 70 points above the national average! The median home cost and rent are more expensive as well. So if you want to retire here, you either need to have some money or be strategic about what area of Maryland you choose. While there are more affordable areas, you might want to look elsewhere if you have a low budget.
