Women and Money

Women have unique financial circumstances. They earn less, on average, than men, and may have employment gaps due to family care giving. This can affect current earnings as well as future retirement benefits. On average, women live longer than men, so their money has to last longer.

Financial security doesn’t just happen. Reviewing current finances, looking at what you want to achieve and planning for the future needs are vital steps. Life often has bumps and detours along the way. Your financial plan needs to include “what ifs” to help minimize the effects of these financial detours.

The Women and Money programs presented by Julie England from UF/IFAS Lake County Extension will help people learn how to manage their money and their future. Topics include: Building Blocks of Financial Security; Planning Ahead for 'What Ifs'; and Creating a Plan to Meet Your Goals.

The programs are free and registration is appreciated but not required.
