The Case for Personal Financial Education in Schools: Part 5

Millennials are at the start of their work lives, yet they are already tapping into their retirement accounts - if they've even started one:

• Only 36% have a retirement account

• 17% with an account took a loan in the past 12 months

• 14% took a hardship withdrawal in the past 12 months

Millennials are sacrificing their retirement accounts, and this trend is especially worrying because it can compromise long term financial security.
