A new study by the MetLife Mature Market Institute revealed that women who take an active role in their retirement planning stand a better chance of securing their finances in retirement than those who avoid the process.

“The MetLife Study of Women, Retirement, and the Extra-Long Life: Implications for Planning” examined how women between age 50 and 70 think about retirement.
