Retirement For Women

Women Are Insecure About Retirement, Survey Shows

On top of all the issues we have to deal with, thoughts of retirement are apparently really packing on the pressure. Disturbing results from a survey conducted by the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies show that many women are ill-equipped to deal with retirement and don't have the personal finance knowledge to properly prepare themselves. The poll also revealed that half of the participants feel insecure about their retirement. The feeling is understandable given the rocky economy we've been experiencing over the past two years.

Fueling the insecurities is the fact that more than half of the respondents also say that they don't have a retirement strategy in place. What about you — are you secure about your retirement?

(Especially since I have two sons to put through college at some point.) This has given me the courage to dive into my dream job of freelance writing. (Well, more like wade into it. I can't give up my day job until I get a book length manuscript published with a contract for royalties. My back-up plan is to invest in a small bookstore.
