Overview

Fewer than 20% of Baby Boom women will experience a secure retirement. Marriage, education, occupation, home ownership--these variables predict their future. Possession of all four indicates retirement security, and absence of any increases risk of old-age poverty. These and other findings about Baby Boom women's retirement are outlined in this book.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reports on an in-depth examination of three key structural variables impacting the future retirement of baby boom women: population aging, baby boom women's labor force participation, and retirement income sources. The study's findings paint a grim picture, revealing that these women's retirement will not look like men's retirement patterns, that traditional sources of retirement income such as Social Security and employer pensions will be insufficient for most baby boom women, and that these women will enter retirement as society's caregivers of the country's elderly.
