According to Experian, young adults in their 20’s are struglling to manage the debt that they have. Aside from student loans, students have been cutting back on most forms of debt.
According to Experian, the average debt in the United States per person is roughly $28,000, including credit cards, car loans, student loans and other personal loans. The average credit card debt per person is $4,500. In comparison, millennias have roughly $23,000 in total debt and $2,700 in credit card debt.
Millenials have the fewest number of credit cards and the lowest average balance on them, yet they also have the lowest credit scores due to a high incidence of late payments. These late payments damage credit scores, which make it difficult to get loans or even new apartment leases. While the average credit score in the United States is 681, the average for millennials is just 628.
