Did you know that 50% of women in the U.S. are living without a spouse? That number is up from 33% in 1950 and 48% in 2000, according to the U.S. Census bureau (2015).
Ladies, this makes the need for creating a big picture plan for personal and financial security all the more important.
It matters not your income level, and it matters not whether you’re single or married, widowed or divorced. Planning is the key to creating financial security for your retirement years.
Studies reveal that when women work with a financial professional to create a plan for retirement and then implement that plan, their confidence around money increases, and their fears and anxieties about the future decrease.
Why work with a financial coach?
In a word, objectivity. When you work with a financial coach, you don’t have to worry about being pressured to invest in any particular product. A financial coach isn’t going sell you into any particular investment.
What you will get is learning, accountability and support around your financial goals. You’ll get your questions answered and your concerns addressed. You’ll walk away with increased financial literacy and a big picture retirement plan to implement at your pace – in a way that honors your personal values.
