Retirement planning is important for all individuals; however, it is especially important for women. At some point during their lives, 80 to 90 percent of women will be solely responsible for their own finances. Unfortunately for the majority of them, it will be later in life. Women tend to have shorter work histories than men, as a result of entering and leaving the workforce due to raising children. In addition, fewer women participate in employer-sponsored retirement plans compared to men.
The theme for this year’s Ready Campaign promoting September as National Preparedness Month is Resolve to Be Ready in 2012. This public awareness drive encourages individuals and community leaders to make the resolution to take the necessary steps to be prepared for emergencies.
Preparedness is an individual responsibility. By being prepared as individuals, we free up valuable resources, including allowing our first responders to assist those who are in the greatest need.
