Women are facing a retirement crisis
When it comes to retirement, women and men are not on equal footing. Women have just 70% of the overall retirement income men have as a result of a number of factors, including the gender pay gap and less access than men have to employer-sponsored retirement plans.
This gap in retirement security is top-of-mind for women nearing retirement age: a recent AARP survey found 25% of women age 50–64 are not at all confident they will have enough money to live comfortably throughout their retirement years.
