Retirement Issues By Gender

This is a long and detailed but thorough research paper examining the different retirement issues of men and woman and what gives or detracts from each gender’s psychological well being. Here are some of the findings.

Financial resources are more strongly related to men’s than to women’s psychological well-being in retirement.

Flexibility in goal adjustment and persistence in goal pursuit prior to retirement are positively related to men’s and women’s psychological well-being in retirement

Only for men, but not for women, leaving a satisfying job is detrimental to their psychological functioning 

Contrary to our expectations, leaving a monotonous job does not relate to higher but to lower levels of psychological functioning among retired men
