Marcia Mantell, Author of "What's the Deal With®... Retirement Planning for Women?," Joins Panel at the Retirement Income Industry Association's 10th Year Anniversary Gala

Free Kindle Edition of New Book Available on Amazon September 16 - 20, 2015

NEEDHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2015) - Marcia Mantell, leading retirement professional, blogger ( and author of new book, What's the Deal With®... Retirement Planning for Women?, is participating on a panel discussion at the Retirement Income Industry Association's Fall Conference and 10th Anniversary Gala in Indianapolis, IN.

The discussion, "The 51%: Planning for the Unique Retirement Challenges of Women," features top experts on retirement planning for women. RIIA's conference focuses on mapping the new realities of retirement and will include such renowned retirement leaders including François Gadenne, Executive Director of RIIA; Nicolas Lance, RMA®, Retirement Income Strategies, OneAmerica; Professor Moshe Milevsky, York University; and, Professor Wade Pfau, The American College.

Why is retirement planning different for women? "Women are completely comfortable talking about 'M-word' topics like marriage, motherhood, martinis, mammograms and menopause," says Mantell. "But bring up money and the conversations screech to a halt."

Mantell, in a mission to turn up that money conversation and promote financial independence among women, shares her thought-provoking, fun approach to planning for retirement. "Ask how prepared a woman is for retirement and she'll tell you the date she wants to retire, but not how much money she'll need for a 30-year retirement." That's a problem.

What's the Deal With®... Retirement Planning for Women? provides:

  • Realistic perspectives on retirement in the new era
  • A treasure trove of resources to get started
  • Practical examples of how other women are redesigning and reinventing retirement

The book includes a critical overview of Social Security which is often the foundation of income for nearly every woman in retirement. Mantell will offer a free Kindle edition of her new book from September 16 - 20, 2015. Those interested in the free book should go to Amazon and order online.
