Survey: More parents cutting into retirement savings to help adult children


New report says more parents are using their retirement savings to support adult children.

A Bankrate Survey found high earners are more likely to dip in to their savings, while low income parents are more likely to never save for retirment.

In fact, 1 in 6 parents who make less than $50,000 a year say they did not save because they were supporting their adult children.

The survey says “helicopter parenting” could be a cause for the increase, making it harder for children and parents to let go in adulthood.
