Every fourth household has a small margin



Every fourth household in Sweden will have difficulty overcoming SEK costs around SEK 15,000. Very small margins have people in the older age category, showing a new survey from debt collection company Lowell.

"Regular unexpected expenses, as we know," said Erika Rönnquist, CEO of Lowell.

– Cars that need to be repaired are easily priced at SEK 15,000.

But each fourth household indicated that they would have difficulty repairing the car for this amount, showing a survey of debt collection companies conducted by Demo Research Analysts in October.

Even more – 32 percent – shows that they will have difficulty placing $ 30,000 for something unexpected.

People in the older age category have very small margins, according to the survey, and the situation seems more difficult than last year.

Each fifth between ages 55 and 64 shows that it will be very difficult or impossible to cough 30,000 kronor – six percentage points more than the same survey 2017.

At the same time, there are more and more people in the same age group who are also worried about the municipal economy, something that is also examined by debt collection companies.

"I think it's about the message we receive all the time. We are now at the peak of the explosion, and most people understand that it can only get worse, said Erika Rönnquist.

Last year, 36 percent answered between 55 and 64 years that they were worried about the economy of their municipality, the corresponding figure this year was 42 percent.

"So in this case at this age that you start thinking about retirement. If there is a nursing home and if you really will get help.
