The Financial Health of Young America

Millennials, members of a generation that came of age during one of the greatest economic downturns in our nation’s history, have experienced unique financial hardships that have threatened their economic security and hindered their ability to start independent adult lives. This report compares the financial health of young Americans in 1989 to today’s young adults, revealing major declines across five key factors – income, assets, net wealth, home ownership, and retirement savings. The findings show that Boomers had higher incomes, higher rates of home ownership, and twice the net assets that Millennials have today.
