3rd Annual Young Adult Retirement Summit

Event Overview

Today, more than 50% of America’s Hispanic population is composed of younger generations whose imminent financial wellbeing puts them at a greater disadvantage in preparing for retirement. Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, health and wealth disparities were exacerbated for communities of color, especially for Young Millennials and Gen Zers who face employment insecurity and hardship due to the economic downturn. 

Additionally, it is often the children of immigrants that help to financially support and give care to elderly parents or grandparents, especially those who are undocumented. To truly ensure an equitable financial recovery, the country must prioritize the country’s most vulnerable, including undocumented older adults and undocumented essential workers.
