Caring for aging parents and college-bound kids, all while trying to save for your retirement?
AARP Georgia is scheduling workshops that can help members of the “Sandwich Generation” juggle the financial needs of three generations. Presenters will outline 10 steps to a secure retirement and address issues such as whether to tap a 401(k) to pay for children’s tuition.
Nearly half of Americans in their 60s have at least one living parent, compared with 4 percent to 7 percent a century ago. About 15 percent of today’s middle-aged Americans are caring for both children and parents.
AARP is working with schools and community groups to set up sessions for African Americans and Latinos, who are less likely than Caucasians to be covered by an employer-sponsored retirement plan.
