For many young professionals, independent life starts in your 20s, and with it comes all the freedoms and responsibilities that go with setting out on your own.
Whether you’re starting your first full-time job or moving into an apartment of your own, there are endless financial decisions that are now up to you, not your parents.
So what are the key financial considerations that should be on your radar at this age? Here are a few of the major financial issues and milestones common among your peers in their 20s:
- Embarking on your career
- Paying off student debt
- Renting an apartment
- Saving money to buy your first home
- Spending money on travel, a car, and other major expenditures
From a financial perspective, your 20s are the time for building the foundation on which your financial future will take shape.
