  Sandwich generation -- 50s

The sandwich generation

You may not want to announce it, but you're officially a senior according to AARP! Some people make lifestyle and career changes now. But don't forget you've reached the critical decade for planning your retirement. It's time to get serious about organizing your finances. Check-up your retirement strategies and stay focused on your savings and investing goals.

This is not always an easy task especially if you're the peanut butter and jelly between two slices -- your kids and your parents. Your children may be finishing up college, planning their wedding, or blessing you with a first grandchild. And you may also be helping to care for your parents. Financial planning will help you stretch your dollars to meet all your needs.
