The sandwich generation is a group of people who are stuck in a financial sandwich. These adults are having to financially help their aging parents and college-aged children at the same time, while also trying to save up for their own retirement.
HCR Wealth Advisors recently published an article about the sandwich generation on their website, which features blog posts about the latest events and issues regarding personal finance. HCR Wealth Advisors is a registered investment advisory firm located in Los Angeles, California, that specializes in developing personalized strategies to help its clients reach their financial goals.
The problem for members of the sandwich generation, in general, is that they might not have enough money saved up for their own retirements. Taking care of loved ones is high up on the list of priorities for many people, though it can leave people high and dry when it comes time for them to retire. But that’s where HCR Wealth Advisors can come into play.
Further, because middle-aged persons and families belonging to the sandwich generation typically live longer in today’s world than they have in previous years, it’s important for them to save up greater sums of money than at any time in the past. Despite this fact of life—a generally positive fact, as people generally want to live longer, fuller lives—far too many people fail to take it to heart, resulting in a widespread failure to save up enough money for retirement.
HCR Wealth Advisors was founded back in 1988 by Mr. Greg Heller, a certified financial planner who is the firm’s CEO. Steve Weinberger, also a certified financial planner, works with him as HCR Wealth Advisors’s senior managing director. For more details on how to manage your wealth, contact @HCRwealth.
