4 in 10 Gen Zers Are Worried About the Economy. Here's How to Prepare (3 min read)

The recent Bank of America (BoA) survey showed that the economy and high inflation is the top financial concern for 42% of Gen Zers. It has made it harder for them to achieve their financial goals like saving or paying down debt. Here are some ways to prepare for economic downturns, especially when it might get worse. Make a budget or update the one you have to reflect higher living costs. Emergency fund is typically 3 to 6 months of living expenses but about 12 months will give you more security in case of job loss when the economic situation worsens. If you have any high interest debts, try to pay it off as soon as possible. It sounds harder than it looks, but as rates go up it will make the debts even harder to pay off. Bottomline is to cut costs, put away savings when possible, and pay down debts. If recession doesn’t come then you will have more money saved up, but if it does, then at least you will be more financially prepared.
