10. A woman's intuitive ability to manage her emotions around money is one of the most important aspects of Creating Wealth over the long term. T or F

Answers:

1. FALSE- 90% of all women end up managing their own finances at some point because of increasing divorce rates, becoming a widow and because they live longer.

2. TRUE- Most women are too conservative in their investing.

3. FALSE- Historically not true. There are periods of decline but over the last 50 years, the market has shown overall long-term growth.

4. FALSE- You can open a Mutual Fund automatic account builder program for as little as $25 a month.

5. TRUE- According to studies by the WEFA Group you need 70-80% of your pre-retirement income when you retire. That means if you earn $45,000 when you retire, you will need between $31,500 and $36,000 per year during retirement.

6. TRUE- According to the National Center For Health Statistics, a woman that is 45 who plans to retire at 60 can plan on living 21 years, to the age of 81. Because women live so long, good retirement planning can make a very big difference in how comfortably you live throughout your later years.

7. FALSE. According to Ibbotson Associates, over the last 30 years stocks have been the top performing asset class.

8. FALSE- a monthly investment of $50 growing at 8% a year would be worth $9,147 in 10 years and $29,451 in 20 years.

9. False- She can expect Social Security to replace 30% of her pre-retirement income or $15,000 if she had been earning $50,000 a year.

10. TRUE- You go girl! You KNOW it's true!!
