The Sandwich Generation: Balancing Your Finances Between Kids & Aging Parents

Length: 1 hour

Who are in the sandwich generation? These are individuals who are taking care of their aging parents, while also supporting their children. Being “sandwiched” in the middle, they face pressures unique from other generations before them. Whether you are an older parent, child, or the one sandwiched in the middle, this course can help provide some insight on dealing with the financial issues surrounding this generation. In this course, we discuss how the sandwich generation came to be, how to talk to aging parents and children about money, and set appropriate boundaries and expectations. We also discuss budgeting strategies for the sandwich generation, common retirement pitfalls and how to avoid them.
