The booklet, titled “What Today’s Woman Needs to Know: A Retirement Journey,’ will be published by MetLife’s Mature Market Institute in collaboration with the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER).
In particular, the publication addresses the challenges that women face, such as job switching, taking time out for family and figuring out when to retire. It also tackles financial issues such as protecting assets, health care costs and ways to use home equity.
Some of the features the booklet includes are:
- A retirement savings and planning checklist for each decade with guidelines for women from their 20s to their 70s.
- A glossary that defines terms like annuity, asset allocation, individual retirement account (IRA), reverse mortgage and time horizon.
- A number of resources women can look to for further retirement investigation and planning.
