Social Security is the foundation of retirement income for most Americans. That is why it is important to learn about how Social Security works and understand what your options are so you can get the benefit you deserve and avoid costly mistakes.

To get started, check out WISER's guide, Social Security: What Every Woman Needs To Know or download the PDF. For more resources, visit the Social Security section of the website and be sure to sign up for your online Social Security account at



Thank You for a Successful Event!



Thank you to all the speakers, sponsors and attendees who participated in WISER's recent symposium, Retirement Income: Strategies, Choices, and Decisions. The program focused on examining the challenges women (and men) face securing retirement income strategies due to longevity risks and the changing nature of retirement plans.

The event brought together leaders and experts to discuss helping consumers get through the complexity and confusion of managing income for 20-30 years. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
