Retiring single has its privileges and challenges. There's freedom, and there's financial responsibility, which some people may find daunting. These sites help sort out the issues and answers.
The Women's Institute for a Secure Retirement, at WiserWomen.org, provides this retirement planning page with links to retirement calculators, explainers on reverse mortgages, pensions, divorce, veteran's benefits, and a whole lot more.
"Living alone as you approach retirement is hard work," notes this post at tiaa-cref.org, the financial-service firm for employees of nonprofits. The page aimed at single women in their 60s goes on: "Solid planning and good financial advice are important factors in transitioning smoothly into this next phase of life. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to retirement, so it's important to make smart moves now to help make your next act be all it can be." When it comes to making investment choices - which, a cited survey said more women than men are uncomfortable making on their own - the post recommends some self-teaching at websites such as Morningstar.com, Fool.com, and tiaa-cref's own Advice & Guidance.
