As a member of the “sandwich generation,” you’re balancing your own financial needs with those of your children and your parents. Estate planning, college financing, retirement, elder care—your money has many important plans for the future … but finding the path to pursuing them can be complex.
We can help.
In a recent survey by JumpStart Coalition for Financial Literacy, only 26 percent of those between the ages of 13-21 said that they had been taught how to manage money. Yet, when they turn 18, kids are signing contracts for student loans, opening credit card accounts, and in many instances, living away from home with little financial guidance available.
Giving money to philanthropic causes is important to many of us. Year end giving in particular is popular with both donors and charitable organizations. The most common way to give money for most people is to simply write a check or put a donation on a credit card. The charity then typically sends us a receipt for our donation, and everyone is happy.
Not so fast.
With another graduation season upon us, young people are trying to make the transition from college to colleague. There will be big changes and challenges ahead. If you can start off on the right financial footing in your 20's, you will be leaps and bound ahead of others that don't get their finances in order until later in life.
