Who are we?

Aging Workforce Solutions is a Financial Advisory Practice based in Darien, CT. It began in response to the shifting demographic in our society. Over the next decade 70-80 million boomers in America will exit the workforce; only 30-40 million workers will replace them.  This shift will change the way businesses will staff, train and deliver benefit offerings to their employees.

AWS functions to support families, businesses and their employees in various ways.  Primarily, the areas of insurance (life, disability and long-term care insurance), Company Benefits, Retirement Planning are our core areas. We also have a consultative role in the areas of business development and exit planning in the small to mid-market areas.   My name is Tom Smith, the President of Aging Workforce Solutions.  In addition to being the owner of my own business, I was a caregiver to two very needy senior adult parents from 2001 through 2015.  Thus, I am very familiar with one of the challenges of the Aging Workforce: Working age adults providing care for their parents.  The need for this “Sandwich Generation”-workers caring for parents and children simultaneously-to balance personal and professional responsibilities will create challenges and opportunities for businesses.
