Nearly 50 million middle-aged working Americans are currently caring for both their kids and an aging parent. This generation of caregivers can often feel “sandwiched” between providing both financial and emotional support to their multi-generational family, while juggling their own needs and obligations.

Taking on the role of caregiver can be rewarding and challenging. For example, how do sandwichers manage to keep sight of personal finance goals while caring for loved ones? What is the best way to talk with family about caregiving responsibilities and expectations?

Ally Bank would like to invite you to this month’s TweetChat: The Finances of the Sandwich Generation, co-hosted with, to discuss the importance of financial planning for current and future members of the sandwich generation. Tell us how you’re navigating through the pressures of caring for multiple generations, and you’ll have a chance to win one of two $100 Amazon gift cards.
