How Do Your 2022 Resolutions Lineup With Other Americans?

February 23, 2022

If you’re like 84% of Americans1 dealing with the ongoing pandemic, you’ve learned to let go of what you can’t control. As the new year kicks off, you may be wondering how your top personal and financial goals stack up with others in the U.S.

Top Three Personal Goals

A lot of us juggle a remote job and family, while others deal with stress from working on the frontlines. Retirees who envisioned travel as a hobby may be staying put for now. No matter what your situation is, it’s no surprise that the top three personal goals for 2022 center around physical and mental well-being.

Top Three Financial Goals

Financial resolutions are very pragmatic for individuals as 2022 kicks off: pay off debt, spend less and save more. Among those with savings goals, more than half want to focus on long-term goals, such as retirement and health care, while 49% plan to focus on short-term goals like shoring up emergency savings. Notably, 62% of people who are age 18-35 plan to increase their retirement contribution in 2022.1

Top Three Financial Concerns

We’ve all felt the squeeze of inflation when we buy gas, groceries, clothes and cars. And we’ve all been there—an unexpected health care expense or house-related cost, like a new air conditioner, require us to dip into savings. Inflation, unexpected expenses and ongoing pandemic concerns are top of mind for 2022.
