A new report from CreditCards.com says 68% of women and 56% of men are losing sleep over money, reports 10 News.
Overall, about 6 of every 10 Americans are losing sleep over at least one financial issue. However, it is often not just a single money problem that is keeping people awake at night.
CreditCards.com asked about five specific financial issues – saving for retirement, paying for education, paying health care or insurance bills, paying the monthly rent or mortgage, and paying credit card debt. The average person who is losing sleep said 2.3 of the above issues were combining to keep them awake.
“There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground when it comes to Americans’ financial worries,” said Matt Schulz, CreditCards.com’s senior industry analyst. “Many folks have none at all, but many of us are worried about several different problems all at once.”
