Disposable Income Greatest In Wales

Published: 7/6/2010

A recent Legal and General survey has shown that the Welsh are the most likely to have money left at the end of the month after covering bills and essential payments.

Two thirds of people in Wales had money left over, compared with a national average of 53 percent and a surprising 43 percent in London. These findings really turn the general understanding of where the money is on its head. Although the cost of living in London is high it has always been thought that wages covered this difference with some to spare, but perhaps not.

A Legal and General spokesman felt the findings should prompt consumers to start putting some money aside into a savings account or something similar. Having disposable income does not mean it has to be spent straight away, saving some can make a massive difference to the future.
