Your Retirement Readiness NOW Tip:
Women's Institute For A Secure Retirement
Improving the long-term financial security of all women through education and advocacy.
WISER is a nonprofit organization that works to help women and others understand the important issues surrounding women’s retirement income. They create a variety of consumer publications including fact sheets, booklets and a quarterly newsletter that explain in easy-to-understand language the complex issues surrounding Social Security, divorce, pay equity, pensions, savings and investments, banking, home-ownership, long-term care and disability insurance.
Retirement Readiness NOW is not just about saving money and not just something you do just before retiring. Money is very important, but that’s not all. There’s a lot more to planning for your future than putting aside income out of each paycheck for retirement.
What else is there? Happiness, both today and in your future years, is based on your total well-being. So, when planning for your future, you also need to consider your total retirement well-being that encompasses the following:
Networking - What are you doing today that will allow you to be engaged, challenged and fulfilled in retirement?
Overall Health - What are you doing to stay healthy so that you can enjoy your retirement years?
Wealth - How well are you managing your income and investing for your future so that you will be able to support your desired lifestyle in retirement?
Each week we send you a link to a web site that will help answer one of the questions above. Please visit the web sites and share the links with your employees and your friends.
