Free Online Webinar to Help Women Prepare for Retirement
How many women could use more information on Social Security and retirement?
During this economic crisis — just about all of them. Women have a higher risk of poverty in retirement than men, particularly women of color and single women (whether widowed, divorced, or never-married), and Social Security is the most important part of many women's retirement incomes.
As women think about retirement, they may take stock of their savings and realize they don’t have enough saved — and they don’t know what to do with the savings they do have. They may not know what benefits they can get from Social Security, and how their decisions about when to claim benefits (and their husband’s, if they are married) can affect the benefits they receive.
Don’t panic! The National Women’s Law Center is hosting a two-part series of free webinars to help women prepare for retirement, for service providers, advocates, and individuals. The first webinar is about women and Social Security; the second is about pensions and savings.
Register today! This online workshop is free to participants, butregistration is required.
