Living long: the greatest risk to women
A recent article in the New York Daily News discussed the trouble that many women are experiencing across the U.S. (and probably in Canada also).
As the statistics tell us, life expectancy is high for women (85 here in B.C.), but financially, many women do not have sufficient resources to fund a lifestyle.
The writer states that far too many women do not have pensions, and even more have not made (or never made) any retirement plans, and so are stuck.
Every woman, regardless of her age, should get an idea of the cost of living their retirement, and then put together (with advice) a plan for living it.
The writer of the article suggests that women should spend at least as much time planning their retirement as they do planning their next “dream” vacation!
