  • Meeting major unexpected expenses (30%)
  • Regular expenses and the cost of living (24%)
  • Meeting the cost of education (22%)
  • Credit card debt (17%)
  • Paying large bills (11%)

The study also found that 90% of people who have had a financial planner have benefited from the experience.
