What To Do When You Need Help Paying the Bills
A Bankrate.com study found that 36 percent of all Americans said they are more concerned with paying bills than any other financial issues, the highest percentage for any listed options. Paying down debt was selected by 20 percent of Americans as a top priority, saving was identified by 18 percent, and providing financial assistance to others was listed by 12 percent. 'Americans' financial priorities reflect the difficult economic realities of high unemployment, stagnant income and the absence of new high-paying jobs,' said Greg McBride, senior financial analyst at Bankrate website.
These priorities have not changed much in recent years. Bankrate held the same poll one year ago: at that time, 32 percent of Americans said their top priority was staying current or catching up on their bills, while 23 percent identified paying down debt.
Job security ratings also decreased throughout October, according to Bankrate, and are projected to stay negative throughout December. Americans who reported feeling less comfortable with their savings also outnumbered those who feel more comfortable with their savings for the 36th consecutive month, when comparing their situations to one year prior.
However, consumers are beginning to increase the amount of money they have at their disposal. Almost 30 percent of respondents reported having a higher net worth than they did at this point in 2012, while only 16 percent of individuals reported that their net worth had lowered.
