"Unexpected expenses are on a regular basis, as we know," says Erica Rönnquist, CEO of Lowell.

– A car that needs to repair costs is easy to SEK 15,000.

But every fourth household indicates that they will have trouble repairing the car for such an amount, showing the company's debt collection survey conducted by the Research Analyst Demo in October.

Further more – 32% – indicate that they would have difficulty putting $ 30,000 on something unexpected.

The older age group has very small margins, according to the survey, and the situation seems more difficult than last year.

In every fifth of those between the ages of 55 and 64 it would be very difficult or impossible to cough 30,000 kronor – 6 percentage points more than the same 2017 survey.

However, there are more and more people in the same age group who are also concerned about the city's economy, which the debt collection company also examined.

"I think it's about this message that we are fed all the time.We are now on top of the boom, and most people realize that it can only get worse, says Erica Rönnquist.

Last year, 36% of respondents said that between 55 and 64 years of age were concerned about the economy of their city, the corresponding figure for the year was 42%.

"So in this era you start thinking about his pension.If there is any retirement and if you really get any help.
