When it comes to investment and retirement-related planning, women have unique needs.Single women, in particular, face difficult financial challenges. On average, women:
Live longer than men.
Earn less than men and typically have less saved for retirement.
Are more likely to care for children and elderly parents.
Start new companies at twice the rate of men.
As divorcees, experience an average 45% decrease in their standard of living in the year following a divorce.
At age 65 or older, are 50% more likely to be divorced or widowed.
As retirees, receive only half the average retirement benefits of men.
Are more fearful than men about making financial decisions, dealing with risk and losing money.
