A stunning 93 percent of baby boomers provide their adult children with financial support. Suzanna de Baca, vice president of wealth strategies at Ameriprise Financial, explains the pinch boomers are finding themselves in. Takeaway listener Mark Niedt in Denver explains why he has been helping support his adult children.
