Top 5 Retirement Challenges for Women

  • Women usually live longer than men but tend to save less for retirement.
  • Women make 82 cents to every dollar a man earns.
  • Women are more likely to work part-time jobs without access to workplace savings plans.
  • Women are still the primary caregivers, often leaving jobs to care for family members.
