Single women and retirement saving

Unmarried women workers and retirees have lower retirement confidence than their married peers and are more likely to have lower incomes and assets, new research found. In addition, single retirees were more likely to note their expenses were higher than expected, the report stated. Married women were more likely to say they were confident about retirement compared with divorced and single, never-married women workers. Only 27% of married women workers had less than $25,000 in assets compared with 58% of divorced women and 56% of single, never-married women, the report stated.
