Are you earning enough money?
If you’re like most Americans, you probably feel like you’re not. You may also feel like you don’t have enough in the bank, that your cost of living is rising, and that it’s harder to make ends meet lately. Now more than ever, amid economic uncertainty and rising inflation, it’s hard not to worry about financial sufficiency.
So, what exactly is ‘enough,’ and how many people feel like they don’t have it? We surveyed over 1,000 Americans to find out.
- 70% of Americans feel like they don’t earn enough money, and 72% feel like they don’t have enough saved or invested.
- 82% of Americans feel they don’t have enough money for at least one essential spending category.
- 66% of Americans feel they don’t have enough money for health-related expenses, 55% for housing expenses, and 37% for food.
