Date:5/19/2008

e expectancy. Traditionally, women have been younger than their husbands; therefore, periods of widowhood of 15 years or more are not uncommon. For many women, the death of a spouse is accompanied by a decline in standard of living."

Women expressed higher levels of concern versus men regarding the following risks:
-- Inflation -- 62 percent versus 51 percent

-- Affording long-term care -- 57 percent versus 47 percent

-- Healthcare costs -- 56 percent versus 45 percent

-- Depleting savings -- 52 percent versus 37 percent

-- Staying in their home -- 44 percent versus 29 percent

To manage these risks, actuarial approaches include investment strategies to produce income, including joint and survivor annuities and life insurance.

Re-envisioning Retirement

Actuaries are at the forefront of identifying the retirement needs, risks and roles of all stakeholders involved in retirement including consumers and businesses. The Society of Actuaries and its Pension Section Council is spearheading the first-ever Retirement 20/20 initiative. Launched in 2006, Retirement 20/20 is leveraging the insights of more than 60 experts, including leading retirement actuaries, corporate benefits managers, attorneys, public policy advocates and academics. Retirement 20/20 will analyze the retirement landscape with the goal of developing a new retirement system different from traditional defined benefit and contribution plans in the coming years.

Future Retirement Survey Reports

In ongoing efforts to identify, understand and manage the retirement risks facing today's pre-retirees and retirees, the SOA will release a series of three retirement survey reports on the phases of retirement, long-term care concerns and retirement risks for women. The SOA's three survey reports are scheduled to be released later this year.
