WBON is pleased to announce a Women and Retirement event to be held Wednesday, June 15th from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at The Knolls on 2201 Old Cheney Road. The speaker will be Phyllis Webb, CFP, CRPS, CDFA from Waddell & Reed.
Why is planning for retirement more “interesting” for women? Women live longer!
Eleven out of 12 married women outlive their spouses. Not only that, but the financial resources women bring to retirement tend to be smaller than what a man has been able to accumulate during a working life because, on average, women earn less than men and frequently the careers of women are “interrupted” to raise children. So how does that make your retirement look, especially the latter years of your retirement? How do we, as women business owners, overcome these challenges and plan for the future?
