Are You as Financially Secure as You Expected to Be?

USA Today profiled the financial situation of Gen X (which they define as those born from 1965 through 1980) and found that most of them are surprised they're not as secure financially as their education levels and income would suggest. About 20 percent of adults in their 30s are still paying college loans, nine out of 10 consumers in their 30s are in credit card debt, and most are struggling to save for retirement while paying down their debt-loads. According to the Employee Benefit Research Institute, more than one in three workers ages 35 to 44 aren't setting aside any money for retirement, and among those ages 25 to 34, 45 percent aren't saving.
