Don’t Blame It On The Kids

Don’t blame it on our kids!

New research has found that the financial disadvantage women face in retirement has nothing to do with whether or not they have a family.

The research paper, What’s choice got to do with it? by Prue Cameron for the Canberra-based independent think-tank The Australia Institute, says women retire with only 59 per cent of super at retirement age compared to men, even if they work full time, don’t have children or care for elderly parents.

    This is interesting Nadine, women who are retiring now, would be worse off than our younger counterparts, we did no have employer compulsory super when we were younger.
    Look forward to reading about what Prue Cameron has written.
