Women and Retirement

Women and Retirement

 ING’s Retirement Revealed study examined a range of financial and retirement savings patterns, behaviors and attitudes.  What about Women and Retirement?, a deeper look at the data based on gender, age and marital status, helps us to explore and understand the distinct retirement planning challenges faced by women who, on the whole, earn lower wages and save less than do men, yet are likely to live longer and need more assets to fund a dignified, comfortable retirement.
