FINANCIAL PLANNING

F our in 10 adults are holding off on major life decisions—including home ownership, higher education, marriage, having children and retirement—because of financial concerns. This is an increase from 30% last year.

Of the 41% of survey respondents who said they are postponing life goals, 28% blamed a lack of savings and 18% pointed to concerns about the economy as the main reasons.

Harris Interactive conducted the study on behalf of the AICPA.
