(Best Syndication News) - Credit card debt balances are considerably higher for young adults than for the elderly, according to a new study. The researchers also found that the younger adults are taking more time to pay off their balances.

Lucia Dunn, co-author of the study and professor of economics at Ohio State University, suggested that if the trend for the young adults continues into retirement, there could be serious financial problems in the years to come. She continued to explain that if their projections are correct, many of these young adults who have credit card debt will die owing the lenders money.
