In this blog post, Canet discusses the unique challenges women face in retirement and how they can plan to meet them.

Glen Burnie, MD – June 27, 2013 – Estate planning attorney and host of The Savvy Investor TV and radio show, Michael Canet, recently published a blog post on The Savvy Investor website on “Retiring Women: How to Overcome Your 2 Biggest Challenges.” In the post, Canet addresses the two most pressing concerns most women have: longevity and health care.

Canet writes, “Several sets of recent statistics highlight the necessity of Baby Boomer women taking control of their own retirement plans. First of all, nearly 50 percent of women over age 65 are single1 – and for those who are in relationships, the odds are that they will be the surviving spouse and need more funds to support their long-term care. These numbers add up to one impossible-to-ignore fact: women need to plan for their retirements differently – with longevity in mind.”
