Women retire with 40% less in super than men

Women tend to live longer and have less super. But with the right support women can make their super last as long as they do.

Women have even more reason to take control of their retirement savings than men — women typically retire with 40% less super as they take time out to care for children and their elderly parents, and often work part time. Almost half of women believe they are unprepared for retirement and will struggle to make ends meet or even afford basic living expenses in retirement.1
