Wider Opportunities for Women and the Minnesota Women's Consortium Unveil New State Data on Older Women’s Ability to Make Ends Meet

Wider Opportunities for Women (WOW), in partnership with the Minnesota Women’s Consortium released new data on women’s retirement security in Minnesota. The data is an opportunity to look at and discuss the plight of older women as we commemorate Older Americans Month. Single older women fall short of making ends meet by over $4,000 a year in Minnesota’s least expensive communities and almost $8,600 in the most expensive counties. This new resource gives state and national policy solutions, including defending effective state initiatives such as the Alternative Care Program and the Property Tax Refund, to move Minnesota women toward economic security in retirement.
