Here’s some shocking news: millennials apparently have a lot of money. According to a recent Bank of America Survey, 16 percent of millennials have $100,000 or more in savings. Millennials are defined as those between 23 and 37 years of age.
Bank Of America also brings up the fact that millennials are more likely than other generations to ask for raises. They are also expected to hold at least eight jobs in their lives.
Other interesting takeaways from this survey: 47 percent of millennials have $15,000 or more in savings, 73 percent of millennials stick to a budget, and 67 percent of millennials who have savings goals stick to them almost every month.
Bank of America lastly adds that despite their excellent saving habits, millennials think negative stereotypes about their generation – like they overspend or they are bad at managing money – are true.
