Regionally Speaking: International Widows Day

International Widows Day is a day dedicated to honoring a group that can often be overlooked. A spouse’s death is not only traumatic and full of emotion for the surviving spouse – but also a time when a widow must navigate a new financial future – which is understandably daunting if you don’t know where to begin. What may come as a surprise, though, is that individuals widowed age 65 or older comprise only 19 percent of all widowed people ages 15 or older in the U.S. – meaning most widows are under age 65. In an effort to spread more awareness about the key financial moves one should consider after the death of a spouse Lakeshore Public Media host Dee Dotson speaks to local financial advisor Greg Hammer who offers financial tips specific to widows to help them navigate their new financial landscape easier.
