Welcome to the Real World, Millennials
The Millennial generation often is stereotyped as entitled and unprepared for the real world. However, a recent study shows that nearly half of Millennials currently own their own home; 44 percent have a bachelor’s degree or higher; and at least 60 percent already are contributing to a retirement account. Twenty-eight percent of Millennials already have investment portfolios too.
This is hardly a generation that is underperforming.
But Millennials are lagging in one area: their understanding of personal finance. According to the research conducted by George Washington University and funded by the National Endowment for Financial Education® (NEFE®), less than 25 percent of Millennials have had any financial education and only 7 percent show a high level of financial literacy. SAM’s Spending and Savings Basics course is a good place to start.
