In addition to the already daunting task of putting up with men, women face some unique challenges when it comes to retirement planning. According to a recent study conducted by Prudential Financial, women are more likely to be the primary breadwinner and more likely to be single than a generation ago.

articles are written is because nobody has clearly identified and
defined what retirement happens to be, then conveyed a
comprehensible explanation to the throngs of people involved in it
or contemplating it.
