Women Wise: The Essential Guide to Financial and Lifestyle Decisions as We Age
When it comes to retirement advice, one size does not fit all.
Approximately five thousand women turn sixty-five in the United States every day. Despite that, many feel alone, forgotten, and unprepared for the realities of aging and retirement and all that comes with it. In addition to these anxieties, women often face challenges in their sunset years that are unique to their gender: longer lives, a higher probability of being single, and lower levels of financial literacy—all of which make retirement harder to navigate.
In Women Wise, highly respected CFP® professionals Eleanor Blayney and Marjorie Fox tackle the biggest retirement obstacles and decisions women may face, including optimizing Social Security benefits, choosing a Medicare plan, and deciding whether to remain in their own homes or move to a senior community. Combining comprehensive and practical financial advice with deeply personal anecdotes about the challenges they both faced during their sixties and seventies, Eleanor and Marjorie emerge in Women Wise not only as experts but as companions traveling the same road as readers.
Informative and relatable, Women Wise is a must-read for any woman looking to embark on the rest of life’s journey with confidence, grace, and wisdom.
