A survey of more than a thousand U.S. adults conducted by Harris Poll revealed that over half of the respondents said debt had negatively impacted their life. Some of the top sources of concern among respondents included: “relationship tension” with a spouse or partner (21%) causing them to mislead family or friends about their “financial situation” (11%), many worried about their debt in general, (31%), at work, (18%) and before they went to bed (25%), according to the survey.
All of these worries led many to stress about everyday financial decisions because of their debt (28%). Some of the respondents received letters and calls from collection agencies (19%).
However, it was Millennials who showed the greatest signs of stress, with 68% saying debt has had a “negative impact” on their everyday life, a higher percentage than other generations surveyed such as Baby Boomers (48%) and GenXers (59%).
