She's an intelligent woman, seemingly well to do and living in a high rise condo in Florida. Retired, active lifestyle, involved in many activities with her friends, giving of herself to her community, church, and local charities. She did everything right, at least right for her generation, place and time in her life.
She was the loving wife of an auto company executive. She kept a beautiful home, entertained lavishly, and hosted parties for her husband and his business colleagues. She was always there for the children, active in the community, in short, she lived the American dream.
But below the surface was fear, uncertainty, and pain. What's happening here, how did it happen, and can she save herself?
Retirement for women is different than for men, and unless this fact is recognized and acknowledged, a woman's retirement may become something less than golden. My intent in this article, based on 28 years of experience in the financial services industry, is to discuss what women can, even must do, to assure their years in retirement are some of the best years of their lives.
There are many reasons for women living in poverty during their 'Golden Years'. Below are some you may recognize, and suggestions and solutions you may wish to consider.
