WISER establishes new web-based National Education and Resource Center on Women and Retirement Planning

FROM the Women's  Institute for a Secure Retirement (via ELDERBAR list serv):

The Administration on Aging and the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) have jointly established a web-based National Education and Resource Center on Women and Retirement Planning (Center).  The Center’s overriding goal is to assist the Aging Network in educating women of all ages about planning for their future financial, health and long-term care.

The Center focuses its activities on educational materials that meet the special needs of disadvantaged women and their families, including individuals with limited English proficiency. The Center improves women’s access to basic financial and retirement planning tools that promote financial literacy. Our materials include a full library of fact sheets on topics such as budgeting, saving and investing, understanding your pension plan, buying long-term care insurance, Social Security, retirement health and other important topics.

We are writing to invite you to review the products and materials available on the Center’s website and also WISER’s website, and distribute them through your agency. Our goal is to promote greater awareness and utilization of materials by average and vulnerable women. WISER’s website address is www.wiserwomen.org and the Center’s website can be reached from our home page. Most of the materials are downloadable and may be printed and distributed to your clients free of charge. Bulk orders are available for a nominal fee. We encourage you to make these materials available to clients in your community and to link to our website if possible.

We also encourage you to join WISER’s email list. You can use the link below to join. We send monthly updates regarding WISER’s activities, new publications and other useful tips. Your email address is kept completely private.

WISER believes that lifetime financial planning is one key to reducing the unacceptably high rate of poverty among older women. Women with financial skills and resources live a more secure and healthy life. We hope that you will partner with us to create access to these tools and resources. If you have any suggestions for collaborations or dissemination of the materials, we would love to hear from you.
