Make Six Figures? There's a Decent Chance You've Got Almost Nothing in the Bank - BloombergClose to half of those who earn from $100,000 to $149,999 a year have less than $1,000 in their savings accounts. Some 18 percent of them have socked away absolutely nothing.
The study, from financial services website GoBankingRates, found that those who earn over $150,000 annually don't fare much better: Some 29 percent have less than a grand in their savings, and 6 percent have nothing saved at all. The study surveyed 7,052 Americans in early August.
So, there are a lot of people who make over 150k a year. And 35% of them have less than $1000 in savings.
I am sure many of them have assets, this survey result is just about cash savings. But how anyone making 6 figures can have nothing or next to nothing in the bank, I can't imagine. Three to six months savings is standard advice. I get why working class people can't save that, but $150,000+???
