"I wanted to talk about the importance of being prepared for retirement. Preparation, of course is different for everyone, but women will have different retirement needs and goals than men," said Retirement Planning Specialist and author Jennifer Lang.
The retirement preparation process can look a little different for women than it does for men. Although stereotypes are changing, women are still more likely to serve as caretakers than men are, meaning they accumulate less income and benefits due to their time absent from the workforce.
Research shows that 39% of women took a significant amount of time off work to care for loved ones – compared to 24% of men. Women who are working also tend to put less money aside for retirement, saving just 7% of their paychecks on average, while men save closer to 10%.2
"These numbers may seem overwhelming, but you don’t have to be a statistic," says Jennifer Lang. "With a little foresight, you can start taking steps now, which may help you in the long run. My hope is that this ebook can serve as a guide to women and give them some tangible steps that they can take to help put them ahead of the curve."
The ebook is available for Free under the company's eBook section and can only be viewed online. To request a copy, visit Jennifer Lang Financial Services.
