By being retirement smart, we can help our women clients prepare ahead of time for the retirement-specific risks that are most likely to affect them.
In retirement, women are more at risk than men of living longer than expected, surviving a spouse, experiencing a “grey divorce”, being a caregiver, dealing with the long-term care expenses of a spouse, and eventually relying solely on Social Security for their retirement income.
“Women and Retirement” provides specifics about what planners should do to help their women clients be more retirement secure.
In this session you will gain ideas for helping your women clients, family and friends be more retirement secure:
- Learn about retirement risks faced by women

- Learn how home equity can be used beyond just supplemental retirement income (Shelley Giordano, Longevity View Associates)
