Re: Is the Average Age of Widowhood 55?

I hope not. Mom is 55 and dad is 57 and still kicking!

There have been a few deaths in my extended family over the past few years: 2 uncles died (ages 68 and 75; widows' ages 66 and 65). Cousin's husband died very young in a car accident at 44 and my cousin was left a widow at 37 so she skews the average with the other two I guess

I can only be nice to one person today! Today is not your day...tomorrow doesn't look good either.

Re: Is the Average Age of Widowhood 55?

It's not scientific, but the firm I work for gets a lot of women in their early 50's as clients who are new widows.

Most of them have never dealt with any money issues either, but that is for another thread.
