66.7%

That would be the percentage households in Haysville Borough with some Social Security income.  The highest percentage for any municipality in Allegheny County.  So more than 2 out of 3 households.  I think that qualifies as a Naturally Occuring Retirement Community (NORC).

The lowest you ask?  Ohio Township at 15.8%.Outside of Allegheny county some anomalies:  Valencia in Butler County comes in at 68.8%. I wondered if that was highest in the state, but it isn't even close.  Millstone in Elk County clocks in at over 84% among others that are higher. Those young person voter drives really must go over well up there.

Ohio Township has one of the lowest numbers in the state other than maybe Green Hills Borough in Washington County at 11.8%.

Allthose factoids and more you can find by checking out the State Data Center's latest education dashboard.

Do a Google Map search of Valencia. Zoom in, observing the borders of the area. Now observe the neighborhood. Zoom in more. Yes, that entire area is a retirement community, courtesy of St. Barnabas Health System. Fun Fact: Gerald Ford dined at their restaurant.

Haysville has a total population of 70, so this is a little misleading?
