Many Hawaii residents are facing a saving shortfall that could crimp their ability to enjoy a comfortable retirement and saving for retirement is especially difficult for women. That’s because women live longer than men, leave the work force more often to care for family members, and are at greater risk of outliving their retirement income. Older women are 57 percent more likely to live in poverty than older men, according to a recent University of Hawaii study.
