How often, if ever, do you thoroughly review your financial situation?
- Nearly half, or 47 percent, of Americans say they thoroughly review their financial situation six or more times a year.
- Three out of 4 college grads assiduously review their finances at least three and as much as six or more times a year.
- Nine percent of Americans with a high school education or less and 8 percent of those earning less than $30,000 never review their finances.
