Women are more likely to live in poverty during retirement. In general, women aren’t able to save as much money as men for retirement because they earn less, spend time away from work because of caregiving and have less in savings and pensions. In addition, women generally outlive men, meaning that women need to fund a longer retirement period than men.
In the following presentations given by the EMPOWER campaign, learn why retirement for women is different and what you can do to prepare.
