Over one-third (34%) of Americans' monthly income is going toward paying off debt, and 15% say they'll be in debt for the rest of their lives
U.S. adults aged 18+ report having an average of $29,800 in personal debt, exclusive of mortgages, according to the latest findings from Northwestern Mutual’s 2019 Planning & Progress Study. The research also revealed that 15% of Americans believe they’ll be in debt for the rest of their lives.
While those numbers are staggering, they represent an improvement over last year when U.S. adults reported an average of $38,000 in personal debt. Still, the debt problem in America continues to run deep with wide-spread implications. The study found:
- On average, over one-third (34%) of people’s monthly income goes toward paying off debt
- 45% of Americans say debt makes them feel anxiety on at least a monthly basis
- 35% report feeling guilt at least monthly as a result of the debt they’re carrying
- One in five (20%) report that debt makes them feel physically ill at least once a month
- One-fifth (20%) of U.S. adults are not sure how much debt they have
- Over one in three Americans (34%) are unsure how much of their monthly income goes toward paying off their debt

THIS WEEK'S HEADLINES
Despite talk of a recession, most small and mid-size business owners don't anticipate one in 2019 (67%)
Despite pricing pressures and tariff concerns, measures of optimism are approaching the record-setting highs measured in spring 2018, according to the latest PNC semi-annual survey of small and mid-size business owners and executives. Optimism among business leaders about their own company is particularly strong at 55% compared to one year ago (51%) and near the spring 2018 record high for this 16-year survey (58%).
Thirty-nine percent of respondents describe their outlook for the national economy as highly optimistic. Those pessimistic about the national economy hit a survey record low of 7%. Those expecting an increase in the need for financing (8%), employee health care costs (35%), and personal compensation and retirement (22% and 25%, respectively) all declined from a year ago.
“U.S. economic fundamentals remain solid, despite slower economic growth and the ongoing trade war between the United States and China,” said Gus Faucher, chief economist of The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc.
Nearly two-thirds (63%) of small and mid-size business leaders expect their company’s sales to increase, little changed from fall 2018 (64%), but below the near-record high of 69% (spring 2018). However, 52% expect their profits to increase, down from fall 2018 (59%).
Key survey findings include:
Price Promotion: Tariff concerns appear most notably in relation to supply chains. Thirty-eight percent of small and mid-size business owners and executives anticipate tariff policies to trigger higher supplier prices over the next six months, and a small but increasing number (13%) expect their total sales to decrease based upon their understanding of tariffs. Overall, supplier price increases are expected most by industries that are the biggest purchasers of goods: wholesalers/retailers (50%); construction (43%); and manufacturers (42%). Only 26% of…

Connecting veterans with their benefits has been a cornerstone of the VFW's mission for more than a centuryBy Peter Duncan / Newsdesk Editor
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) renewed its support of The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), an organization that fosters camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts, assists with securing benefits, empowers veterans to have a smoother transition to civilian life, and advocates on behalf of all veterans.
WWP’s $410,000 grant to VFW helps connect post-9/11 warriors to benefits counselors at 23 Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD) sites across the country.
“The transition from the military to civilian life can be challenging, but thankfully The Veterans of Foreign Wars have been there to help our nation’s veterans since 1899,” said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. “Wounded Warrior Project is proud to partner with the VFW. Their benefits counselors augment our own efforts to help service members navigate the VA’s claims process and access the healthcare benefits they have earned through their service. In 2018, our grant helped VFW service officers in their efforts to file 14,904 claims and secure more than $155 million in benefits for veterans.”
“Connecting veterans with their benefits has been a cornerstone of the VFW’s mission for more than a century, and our work with Wounded Warrior Project allows us to build on this legacy of service to others,” said VFW National Commander William J. “Doc” Schmitz, of Corning, N.Y. “Through the sustained generosity and support of Wounded Warrior Project, our professional advocates are able to help more transitioning service members than ever before, helping to ensure that those who wear the uniform today are connected with the…
