July 14, 2015

According to the Report on the Economic Well-Being of U.S. Households in 2014, compiled by the Federal Reserve Board, 24% of U.S. households experienced financial hardship in 2014. The report is based on a nationally representative survey of nearly 6,000 Americans and reflects the experiences of the respondents and their families over the twelve months up to October 2014. We hope that our discouraging infographic will encourage you to build up an emergency fund and review your health care policy to prepare for life’s little surprises that can cost you big.
