WOMEN and SOCIAL SECURITY: WHAT EVERY WOMAN NEEDS to KNOW
Q: WHY ARE WE HEARING SO MUCH THESE DAYS ABOUT WOMEN AND THEIR DECISIONS ON SOCIAL SECURITY?
It is very well recognized that women, on average, live longer than men and therefore are likely to spend a longer time in retirement. As a consequence, they will need more money. The decisions about how to make wise Social Security elections is therefore of special importance to women because poor decisions can have long-run consequences for them.
