We know that women often put the needs of others before their own, even when it comes to their physical and mental health and financial security. This Women’s History Month, we celebrate women and are sharing tips to help you learn more about your rights and options when it comes to safeguarding your health and planning for retirement. 

With factors like the wage gap, women working more frequently in part-time jobs with less access to retirement plans and interrupting their careers to take care of loved ones, saving for retirement can be a challenge. On top of that, women tend to live longer than men and need to save for a longer retirement. 

Remember to make time for your physical, mental, and financial well-being – recognizing that while there may be challenges, there are steps you can take – and that you’re not alone. The Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) offers resources and assistance to help:

Your Physical & Mental Health

Your Future Financial Security

These steps will help you get started. EBSA has information and tools to prepare you to make informed decisions about your well-being and retirement security. To find these resources, visit the EBSA website. You also can contact an EBSA Benefits Advisor with your questions: visit askebsa.dol.gov or call 1-866-444-3272 for assistance. Women’s History Month celebrates empowering women – unleash your full power when it comes to your health and a secure financial future with EBSA at your side.
