Silence Is The Word On Financial Fears

Americans are uncomfortable with their financial situation and don’t want to talk about it.

According to AVIVA USA and the Mayo Clinic wellness survey.  Aviva and Mayo Clinic surveyed 2,000 U.S. adults on their financial preparations and health habits to determine the affects on their overall well being.


“Many people choose to ignore rather than address their financial wellness” said Mike Miller, Aviva vice president.

Key Wellness Survey results:

  • 2 in 3 are uncomfortable with their financial situation
  • Only 1 of 3 think they are or will be prepared of retirement
  • Only 1 out of 5 work with a financial advisor
  • Twice as many who consult with a financial advisor feel comfortable with their finances

Survey results

Why two thirds of American feel so much stress and choose silence rather than seeking help on one hand is a  mystery and on the other a little understandable.   This survey clearly finds that those who discuss their financial situation with a professional feel much better and this makes the rest of their lives more enjoyable too; some even lose weight.
