Guest speaker Lara Hinz, program director of the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement, will discuss the unique challenges women face in achieving retirement security. “The biggest risk for women is that they will outlive their savings and they will not know that until it’s too late,” says Hinz.
No registration is required for attending the event at DHS or viewing the webcast.
The Department of Employee Trust Funds, the Wisconsin Deferred Compensation Program and Affirmative Action Committees at several Wisconsin state agencies have launched a year-long, statewide educational campaign, “EMPOWER: Guiding Women of All Cultures Toward a Strong Financial Future,” to inspire and encourage women to save for their retirement.
