Description
 
Elderly women, who comprise a growing portion of the U.S. population, have historically been at greater risk of living in poverty than elderly men. Several factors contribute to the higher rate of poverty among elderly women, including their tendency to have lower lifetime earnings, take time out of the workforce to care for family members, and outlive their spouses. Other factors could affect older women劌製 financial insecurity, including the economic downturn and changing trends in pension plan offerings. This report examines (1) how women劌製 access to and participation in employer-sponsored retirement plans compare to men劌製 and how they have changed over time; (2) how women劌製 retirement income compares to men劌製 and how the composition of their income 劌 the proportion of income coming from different sources 劌蟃hanged with economic conditions and trends in pension design; (3) how later-in-life events affect women劌製 retirement income security; and (4) what policy options are available to help increase women劌製 retirement income security. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
