Week of 1/9/2012 - 94% of Young People to Make Savings a Priority 

    A recent survey conducted by the AICPA and the Ad Council found that the vast majority of young people want to get on stronger financial footing this year, with 94 percent of 25 to 34 year olds saying they are at least somewhat likely to make saving a priority.

    Suprisingly, that's more than those who said the same about living healthier, 90 percent, or losing weight, 78 percent.

    Spokespeople from the AICPA's National Financial Literacy Commission are available to provide insights into steps young people can take to improve their finances this year. Contact Jonathan B. Cox at 919-402-4499 or jcox@aicpa.org to arrange an interview.
