While it’s critical that everyone contemplate what his or her needs will be in retirement, the planning may require extra consideration for women. Given that women have often endured pay inequity, time out from the workforce and other actions that have affected their finances, it’s important that women receive retirement advice specifically tailored for their unique work and life paths. Fortunately, there is a resource that targets these concerns. WISER (Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement) was born in 1996 with the goal of providing information and advocacy to improve the longer term financial quality of life for women. Its focus is on consumers, policy makers and educators to ensure that women have the know-how and resources to create secure and sufficient retirement savings for themselves. So many aspects of a woman’s life can affect her later-life financial well being, including child care, elder caregiving, divorce and widowhood, to name just a few.
