Getting $$ Help From Mom and Dad? Tell Us About It.

If you’re a young adult (between the ages of 22 and 32) who is getting financial help from Mom and/or Dad—and that’s most millennials—and you also happen to live in the New York City area, we’d love to talk to you about participating in a roundtable discussion on this topic that will run as a video on our website. The level of support could range from staying on your parents’ cell phone, car, or health insurance plan to having them help with other bills (say, car or student loan payments or rent) to continuing to live at home or getting a hand with major expenses, such as the down payment on a house.

Among the topics we’d like to talk about:

  • What kinds of expenses your parents help you pay for
  • Why you and so many other young adults need financial help right now
  • How you feel about the support you’re receiving
  • How you think your parents feel
  • Anything else you think is important!

If you fit the bill and are up for appearing in a video, we’d love to hear from you. Please send us a short summary of your situation, including your age, the circumstances and any other details you care to share and think are important. Be sure to include your name and contact info (email address and daytime/evening phone number) so we can follow up with you.
