Don’t want to retire broke? Do this

In its latest survey, financial services firm Edward Jones found seven out of 10 women say they’re confident in their financial knowledge, but many find other priorities come before investing for retirement. Only a quarter of the 1,000 women participants said saving for retirement was an important goal in the next three to five years. Balancing short-term and long-term financial goals is hard, but financial advisers say doing so is necessary to ensuring a comfortable, secure retirement in the decades to come.
