“Gen X and baby boomer clients are sometimes in a position where they need to provide hands-on care for an aging parent or seriously ill child. These caregiving responsibilities can limit a client’s ability to work and, in turn, his or her income. The Family Care Benefit can help reduce the financial impact of an income loss and medical expenses that often occur when caring for a family member.” – Doug Waters, second vice president of IDI sales at The Standard
