There are about 10 million adults over the age of 50 in the United States who provide care for their aging parents. During the past 15 years, the number of adult children providing primary financial or personal care for their parents has increased more than three times. About 25 percent of all adult children in the country today are the primary care providers for their parents. The same number is almost equal to the number of non-working adult children who help their parents.

Approximately one in five Americans have some hearing loss. Often unavoidable due to the natural process of aging, hearing loss can also result from exposure to loud noises over time.
Many people think life insurance is only for the young. That life insurance is a tool best used by newlyweds with mortgages, parents of young children, and spouses who are both employed.
But what does that mean for seniors? Does that mean retirees do not need life insurance? The answer to that question depends on your family's needs as well as your financial picture upon retirement.
There are typically two approaches to securing health coverage for your staff - group health insurance or self-funding.
Self-funding, however, can be costly and risky for some employers and is usually only done by larger organizations with thousands of employees. However, there is a hybrid model that can help small and mid-sized employers provide their staff with affordable health coverage: partial self-insuring.
