Millennials & Financial Literacy— The Struggle with Personal Finance

Millennials & Financial Literacy— The Struggle with Personal Finance

Abstract

Millennials confront greater difficulties— including economic uncertainty, student debt—than those who came before them.

Millennials—the generation of Americans born between the early 1980s and the mid-1990s—are exceptional in many ways. They are better educated than their predecessors, more ethnically diverse, and more economically active. As a generation carrying new personal financial responsibility, it is critically important for Millennials to be on a path leading toward financial security. This report analyzes the financial characteristics of more than 5,500 Millennials and examines the factors that threaten their economic aspirations and security.
