The Sandwich Generation

June 28, 2022

What is the Sandwich Generation? 

In 2013, the Pew Research Center defined the “Sandwich Generation,” as those adults who have a living parent age 65 or older and are either raising a child under age 18 or supporting a grown child.  Not only do many in the sandwich generation provide care and financial support to their parents and their children, but 40% say both their grown children and their parents rely on them for emotional support. 

So who exactly is in the Sandwich Generation? 

According to the Pew Research Center, adults in the sandwich generation are mostly middle-aged, between the ages of 40 to 59. Another interesting statistic is that more affluent adults, those with annual household incomes of $100,000 or more, are more likely than less affluent adults to be in the sandwich generation.
