Abstract

Numerous studies have shown that transfers of privately held resources across generations of the vertically extended family are common but vary in type and intensity with age and the life-cycle stage of the donor and/or recipient. Although resources typically flow from parent to child regardless of age in the United States, middle-aged adults have a heightened and substantial risk of making transfers to their kin in both ascending and descending generations.
