Voya Cares research indicates that two specific groups of Americans
are dealing with unique challenges when planning for their own retirement and other financial goals.
- Sandwich caregivers: Family caregivers providing care to an aging parent while also raising children of their own, often neglecting their personal financial journey. 11 million or 28% of all caregivers — currently are “Sandwich Caregivers.”
- Career extenders: People working past what would be considered a typical retirement age, as they are either not financial ready to retire or voluntarily continuing a successful career. Nearly 20% of Americans over age 65 — a total of 10.6 million people — are either working or looking for work, representing a 57-year high.
