Jan presenting for AARP in Dublin, Ohio (Sept. 2013)



From today's Daytona Beach News-Journal: Single and over 45? Get all the facts on the issues

Find solutions within these pages


What's 25 million strong and growing? It's the number of single (never-married, divorced, widowed) women over the age of 45 in the United States. And, even if you're happily married now, there's an 80-90 percent chance you'll be making all decisions, financial and otherwise, at some point. 

Single women are the second-largest category of homebuyers; women surpass men in college graduation rates and are slowly catching up to men in salaries. But, single women are also the most likely to end up in poverty, have concerns about outliving their money and worry about taking care of themselves — and their aging parents — as they age. 

This 307-page book addresses relocation, health, working, boomer-age children, caregiving, money, divorce, death of a spouse, relocation and what to do with 168 hours a week. It includes the latest research about mature single women, references, fascinating tidbits and lots of anecdotes, examples and suggestions all wrapped up in a friendly, easy-to-read format. Real single women share their challenges, solutions, exhilaration, fears and ideas as they approach or begin this journey we call retirement. 

AARP's “The Single Woman's Guide to Retirement” by Jan Cullinane is designed to be a guide for single women about all aspects of this transition and to provide a blueprint for a satisfying and successful retirement.
