New Tool: Minnesota's Women in Retirement

Wider Opportunities for Women and the Minnesota Women's Consortium teamed up to bring you a new resource in elder economic work. At A Glance: Minnesota's Women in Retirement explains why it is particularly difficult for Minnesota women to achieve retirement security. By providing background information on the Federal Poverty Level and Social Security payments, this tool explains the ways in which Minnesota elder women are struggling.

At A Glance also provides state and national income policy solutions, such as advocating for strengthened commitment to affordable housing and reforming paid family leave.
