TIAA Women-at-Work: A woman's guide to saving and investing

(Registration is required. Register online or by calling 800.732.8353.)

Women may face unique challenges when it comes to retirement and financial wellbeing:

Women tend to live longer.
Women tend to contribute less and start contributing later to retirement.
On average, women spend 11 years out of the workforce.
Women are typically responsible for the majority of caregiving responsibilities.
More than 50% of women are heads of households.
On average, 50% of women will become widows by the age of 65.

These challenges often lead to playing catch-up on retirement savings. This workshop, offered at no cost to you by Human Resources and the Women’s Center, will help you plan for your financial future by:

Learning the core concepts that guide all investing.
Determining your financial goals and building an action plan.
Finding ways to help take on life’s curveballs without damaging your financial wellbeing.
Discover your Financial Personality Type.

Wake Forest will conduct a one-time auto-enrollment for faculty or staff members who have not previously contributed to the Plan via TIAA. Beginning July 1, those individuals will be enrolled at 5% of salary, with the ability to easily opt out through July 30. Visit for more information.
