South African women can’t seem to catch a break as an Alexander Forbes study based on member analysis and released on Tuesday shows that women are likely to get about 10% less income from their retirement funds than men. The Citizen quotes the study as saying the reasons for this include the consequences of decades of inequality and breaks in careers to raise a family. “It is also a result of lower contributions being made to retirement funds by females, in general, as well as the fact that after retirement females live longer than males on average”.
