Her Two Cents

Feb 25, 2021

Welcome to the Her Two Cents Podcast where your hosts Laura Webb and Faith Doyle come together as two female financial advisors with over 40 years of collective experience to provide a multigenerational perspective on all things money. Our goal is that through these conversations, we can normalize the way women talk about and view money. There are few things in this world that are gender neutral, meaning that people are treated the same without regard to their gender; Social Security is one of those things. But if this system is truly gender agnostic, then why are we dedicating an episode to Social Security and how it relates to women? Because Social Security is a system that pays eligible workers benefits based on their lifetime earnings. So, even though this system pays individuals (regardless of gender) with identical earnings through their working lives the same in terms of benefits; we all know women aren’t paid the same from their employers for the same work, still in 2021. This is why we are doing an episode related to women and Social Security. Join us for part two of our series on Social Security as we are joined again by guest Leah Ryan of AIG. We will focus on: how making less effects women's benefits; how it’s different for married, divorced, and widowed women; how longevity effects strategy; and consider the tax implications.
