Literature on immigrants and retirement savings suggests that foreign-born individuals have more relaxed attitudes toward financial preparation in old age than the native-born population (Fontes & Gutter, 2006). This study will examine if immigrant women in child-rearing years save less for retirement than native-born American women and whether variations in retirement saving among immigrant women can be explained by perceived variations in life expectancy in their native countries.
