Why Retirement Accounts Generally Underperform Pensions

As we get older, retirement increasingly becomes a women’s issue.  Living longer and the baby boomer population increase will significantly raise the number of Americans over 85 in the next four decades. Today, in the U.S., women over age 85 outnumber men 2-1.  Despite trends projecting the percentage to narrow some, the majority of older Americans are, and will be, women. This means women should develop a team of financial and lifestyle assistants around them to help absorb the shocks of realistically living into their 90s.
