Women business owners
Protect what you have built
If you own a business, you know there’s no greater reward than flying solo and leading a winning business through hard work and self-reliance. You know the satisfaction that comes from building your business, marketing your product or service, and selling it on your own initiative and drive.

Advantages for women business owners
As a business owner and key decision maker, you have the opportunity to set your own course for retirement planning. Depending on your earned income and the type of retirement plan you establish, business owners have more options in establishing a qualified retirement plan and can generally put aside more tax-deferred funds than people who work for someone else.
The retirement challenge
Women in general do not have enough money for retirement. Why? There are several key reasons:
- Women live longer than men and risk outliving their retirement funds.
- Women are less likely than men to deal with investments.
- Women are more risk averse.
This means your money has to last longer and go further.**
