May 27, 2008

SunTrust Investment Services (STIS), a subsidiary of SunTrust Banks, Inc., , announced today that Sabina Lien, a STIS Private Financial Advisor, will be appearing as a guest on three upcoming segments of The Balancing Act on LIFETIME Television to discuss women and retirement.

The segments will be airing May 28, 29, and 30 at 7 a.m., 6 a.m. CDT.

Ms. Lien's appearances will remind women of the importance of understanding and preparing for the financial aspect of retirement. "With the unique challenges facing women in their personal and professional lives, taking steps to plan financially for retirement can be pushed to the side as an afterthought. The sooner someone starts preparing, the better," said Ms. Lien.

During the three segments, Ms. Lien will discuss how sandwiched boomers can save for retirement while also taking care of their parents and children; how to save for retirement at any stage in life; and what stay-at-home moms and divorced women can do to save for retirement.
