Women are an economic powerhouse in the United States. In fact, according to Time, women account for 47 percent of the workforce. And, that number is projected to grow. Women account for 55 percent of undergraduates on college campuses.

And despite their economic power, women aren’t preparing themselves for a financial secure future. According to Forbes, in 2016, 72 percent of women were saving for retirement compared to 80 percent of men.

For women, who typically earn less than their male counter parts and are more likely to have earning gaps in their careers, saving for retirement, and generally, needs to be strategic to ensure a financially secure future.
