Men and women tend to look at retirement planning differently

Men and women are still different. We didn’t really need to read 1992’s “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” to know that.

But what’s discussed more these days are how those differences (and many other issues) may be even more pronounced in how we prepare for retirement.


TIAA (formerly TIAA-CREF) recently released its new Voices of Experience Survey, which measures the changing attitudes on life in retirement and how people prepare.

The 44-page report covers a lot, but you might be particularly interested in the section that focuses on women in retirement — or more specifically how men and women differ both in planning for retirement and living in retirement.
