It probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone that most of us worry about not having enough money.
According to a Gallup poll released this week, 73 percent of Americans with minor children said they are most concerned about being able to put their children through college. Among lower-income respondents, 70 percent cited covering medical costs for a serious accident or illness as their No. 1 financial concern.
For the past 15 years, however, having enough money for retirement remains the overall top financial concern. Six subgroups — 30- to 49-year-olds (69 percent), 50- to 64-year-olds (68 percent), parents with children under the age of 18 (68 percent), lower-income citizens (68 percent), Hispanics (67 percent) and married women (64 percent) — fret the most about retirement.
