This is the age when many people are starting their careers, so it's not surprising that the average 20-something earns around £19,186.40, over £9,000 less than the national average.
Only 4% of people in this age group earn an income of over £40,000, and 20% remain unemployed. Those who do have a job are usually chasing money more than pursuing a passion, with only 27% fortunate enough to be on their chosen career path.
The majority went to university and have considerably more debt than those who didn't - an average of £20,514.86 compared to £4,720.66, excluding mortgages. Generally, 20-somethings have a disposable income of £210.07 to play with each month. Saving money and having enough money to live on are big concerns for this age group.
