The sandwich generation is mostly millennials who have recently started a family and being a part of this generation is not easy. The majority of people in this productive age must support their family, as well as parents who are no longer productive. To address the issue among this generation, wise financial management could be the first step.

Here are the five Financial Management Tips recommendations for the sandwich generation:

1. Split the responsibilities

It is difficult to alleviate the needs of oneself and one's family. If you have siblings, the first thing you should do is try to communicate with them.

2. Record Financial Management

Calculate your monthly income and expenses. Also, keep track of your dependents on a monthly basis. The first approach is to understand the flow of living costs in and out.

3. Create Financial Plan

Make a wise financial plan by estimating how much you can save once you have recorded your financial management. If your income and expenses are not equal, you should consider about adjusting your monthly cash flow. To make it easier to track your finances, open a digital savings account, such as Maybank U saving account  which offers a variety of benefits, including;
