Hint: She’s Had Your Number for Years
Is retirement different for men and women? YES!Women tend to live
longer than their partners, an average of five to eight years longer. They
also tend to retire earlier than men for various reasons.
Why does this matter?
Because, if you’re a woman, the length of your retirement presents a
challenge. You’ve got to plan so that your income and investments last as
long as you do. This particularly applies to you if you’re a single
woman or a widow.
The good news is that women also tend to be better investors than men,
more focused on long-term decision making and on cash flow needs.
Over the years, we’ve witnessed a pattern.
Many of the women we work with want to educate themselves before investing.
This has been a wonderful trait to see.
If you’re unsure about your own retirement, or if you just want confirmation
that your investments are set up properly for you and your partner, we can
help. We’ve been working with women in retirement for decades.
