WOMEN AND RETIREMENT
Only 13 percent of women have an actual written strategy for retirement, yet over the next decade, women will control two-thirds of consumer wealth in the United States and will be the beneficiaries of the largest transference of wealth in our country’s history. Estimates range from $12 to $40 trillion. Many boomer women will experience a double inheritance windfall, from both parents and husband.

Fifty-plus American women are the healthiest, wealthiest and most active generation of women in history. However, these same women report having an estimated median of $2,000 emergency savings, compared to $10,000 among men.

WOMEN AND SOCIAL SECURITY
Women reaching age 65 in 2019 are expected to live, on average, an additional 21.5 years compared with 19.1 years for men.
46 percent of all elderly unmarried females receiving Social Security benefits relied on Social Security for 90 percent or more of their income which is why they are 80% more likely than men to be impoverished at age 65 and older.
