"Women are less confident about retirement than men, save less for retirement, and often say they don’t know what to do to improve retirement planning — but give them the right advice and their behaviors change.That’s according to a survey conducted by TIAA-CREF, which found that women’s confidence concerning retirement increases substantially, and their behavior changes, when they’ve gotten financial advice," as reported by Marlene Satter: http://www.benefitspro.com/2014/10/29/advice-spurs-women-on-retirement-planning?ref=hp
"The problem is that while the number of women who want financial advice
is on the increase — 33 percent of respondents said they did, compared
with only 24 percent in 2013 — they don’t know where to go to get it." So check our the reliable resources in this blog and attend Financial Planning for Women.
