As increasing numbers of women retire from the U.S. labor force, Extension educators will be called on to provide programming that (1) emphasizes women's retirement and (2) addresses the psychosocial components of women's retirement beyond financial concerns. This article identifies topics of significance for future retiring women as reported by a sample of 31 professional and nonprofessional retired women. These "words to retire by" can serve as a foundation for future program development in the area of women's retirement as well as further study.
