Starting Over after 50: What A Financial Advisor Needs to Know about Divorced Women

Whereas the U.S. national rate of divorce has remained stagnant for 30 years, these trends noticeably reverse themselves starting around age 45, where the percentage of divorced individuals significantly increases.

Among U.S. adults over age 50, the divorce rate has doubled since 1994 and risen more than 700 percent since the 1960s. 1 in 4 married couples age 50 and older are divorcing. Contrary to expectations, long-term marriages are not immune, and the largest increase (55 percent) is in first marriages of more than 20 years.

It helps to take a step back to be able to identify key triggers for late-life divorce and highlight what happens in divorce to illuminate opportunities for advisors to maximize their clients’ post-divorce financial security.

The biggest risk factor for divorce is not life’s transitions (which seems counterintuitive when you are over the age of 50), but one’s marital past. It makes sense that, with our increased longevity and more years of being disability free, couples are simply at risk of divorce for more years than they were in the past. Changed attitudes and finances may ease the way to divorce as well.

It is imperative for advisors to understand what divorced women age 50 plus will experience and what the consequences of gray divorce are relating to financial security.

Learning Objectives:
1. What are the different divorce processes and what is divorce financial planning?
2. What are the key financial challenges that complicate financial security for divorced women over age 50?
3. What are the 4 financial areas to focus on with divorced women at this stage in life?
4. What are key takeaways for how you can improve your client’s retirement years post-divorce
