A Look at Women's Retirement Security
Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation [PBGC] Link to more items from this source
Mar. 21, 2014
"[C]ompared to men, women's retirement security is often less than adequate. The [DOL] reports married women tend to outlive their spouses by two years once they reach age 65 -- that's two whole years of additional savings needed to cover the cost of living expenses that some do not factor in.... [W]omen do not invest in high-risk stocks because of the volatility of the stock market.... Women, more often than men, are employed in part-time jobs and do not qualify for company retirement plans."
