Just when life is supposed to be getting easier, it often becomes more complicated than ever. The "golden years" many of us imagined for ourselves are turning out to involve a bit more than arranging tee times. Many people nearing retirement age are finding their own retirement plans affected by the needs of aging parents.
Some must retire earlier than planned, while others need to continue working to help pay for care. Partial retirement, flextime, and telecommuting are providing more ways to keep your retirement plans and your family responsibilities in balance.
