  • On May 3, 2023, Joanne Lipman, author and former editor-in-chief of USA, joined Jean Chatzky for an episode of Your Money Map titled, Peak 65: What a Retirement Surge Means for Your Future. In 2024, more Americans will turn 65 than ever before. This represents a major demographic shift — our population is growing older, which means it’s even more crucial for us to plan ahead for retirement. How does a higher number of retirees impact older Americans? What effect does it have on our retirement income streams? With longer lifespans and increasing economic uncertainty, how should we be rethinking the traditional retirement age and lifestyle?

  • We all know about the gender pay gap, but many don’t realize this also contributes to a “retirement income” gap between men and women. Lower incomes, longer lifespans, and a tendency to avoid risk in the markets are just a few of the challenges that women are likely to face, causing them to have less in savings during retirement. On April 19, 2023, Jean Chatzky joined Financial Therapist, Author, and Coach, Kathleen Burns Kingsbury and Head of Enterprise Strategic Relationship Management at Prudential, Melissa Kivett, to unpack those challenges and discuss how we can level the playing field.

  • Divorce is challenging for anybody going through it, but the process gets even more financially complicated as you age. The last thing you want is for divorce to damage the retirement nest egg you’ve been building for decades. On April 5, 2023, Jean Chatzky was joined by financial analyst Rhonda Noordyk to unpack all the financial aspects of gray divorce, the additional challenges that it holds for women, and how you can protect yourself and your retirement.
