Hawaii is the state where Americans are most likely to live paycheck to paycheck, whereas residents of Minnesota are least likely, according to a new ranking released today by leading personal finance website GOBankingRates.com.
“Living paycheck to paycheck isn’t necessarily a function of income,” said Cameron Huddleston, GOBankingRates’ Life + Money columnist. “Plenty of upper-income households live hand to mouth because of poor financial habits. In fact, a separate GOBankingRates’ survey found that people earning $100,000 or more were more likely to fear always living paycheck to paycheck than those earning less.”
