Maybe more than ever, in 2022, it feels like your money doesn't stretch as far as it used to. Inflation reached a 40-year high in June 2022.

A recent survey shows 60 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, which is 5 percent more than in 2021. People earning less than $50,000 a year are being hit the hardest by inflation. 75 percent of Americans earning less than $50,000 reported living paycheck to paycheck.

Inflation is even hurting the richest Americans, according to Forbes. As a group, the 400 wealthiest Americans are worth $500 billion less than last year and the minimum net worth to make the Forbes list dropped for the first time since the Great Recession.
