Special report: Women and money

How to tackle investing, money and family matters, and retirement.

Women generally earn lower salaries and live longer than men. They are also more likely to take time off from the workforce. All of these things can dramatically impact their savings—especially when it comes to retirement. On top of that, as many as 9 out of 10 women will be solely responsible for their finances at some point in their lives, according to the National Center for Women and Retirement Research.
