Money freedom a seven-year itch

Young workers reach financial independence seven years later in life than their parents did, according to a new study. A survey of more than 1,000 workers aged between 18 and 27 found that they were or expected to be financially sound by the time they reached 25. A separate poll of 900 parents revealed that they were financially independent when they were 18.
