Impulse to help adult child who has been dealt a financial blow is strong, understandable
Financial fallout from the pandemic is hitting millennials hard — and many will soon turn to their parents for help, if they haven’t already.

Before parents ride to the rescue, financial planners urge them to map out a strategy that doesn’t just plug a short-term need but also makes sense in the long run.

“Often the heartstrings will get pulled — ‘I really have to help them!’— but it can be detrimental to the parent,” says certified financial planner Jeffrey L. Corliss of Westport, Connecticut.

Here’s the bottom line: If you’re going to make progress toward your long-term goals, you have to become a long-term investor. But how?

Should seniors consider a reverse mortgage now?
Reverse mortgages allow older homeowners to turn part of their home equity into tax-free cash, using a loan that doesn’t have to be paid back until they die, sell or move out.

That sounds good to a lot of seniors navigating financial fallout during the coronavirus pandemic. Stay-at-home orders may have taken away jobs needed to make ends meet, while low interest rates and a volatile stock market have endangered income from retirement savings.

How much will market volatility really affect you?
There's no way to sugarcoat it: If you're an investor, you haven't liked what you've seen in the financial markets recently.
