Are Your Retirement Dreams Slipping Away? You’re Not Alone in this.
Providing for aging parents, adult children, and even grandchildren puts a huge economic burden on many adults. If this sounds familiar, you’re probably part of what’s now called the “sandwich generation.” These adults often have to use hard-earned retirement savings to help family pay for caregivers, housing, healthcare, and other necessities.
Other adults fall behind when employer downsizing or a serious illness pushes them into unexpected early retirement. In an instant, the retirement future you’ve imagined seems unlikely.
If you’re struggling to catch up, take heart. You can optimize your retirement by drawing on your most valuable asset: home equity.
