A new report released in March 2016 by the National Institute on Retirement Security (NIRS) finds that across all age groups women have substantially less income in retirement than men. By age 65, 80% of women are more likely than men to live in poverty. Women age 75 to 79 were three times more likely to fall below the poverty level than men.

You may not be aware, but everyone is eligible for Medicare at age 65, even when the normal retirement age for Social Security benefits is later.  We recommend anyone turning age 65 contact the Social Security Administration (www.ssa.gov or 1.800.772.1213) three months before the month of their 65th birthday.
