Not only is Twitter a place where you can share the mundanities of everyday life, get things, big and small, trending, and for many, a space where individuals gather their news, but it’s also a social media platform where possible love connections can be made. While you were at work yesterday, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, 47, tried to shoot his shot with writer and comedian Mindy Kaling, 37.

Americans Die With An Average Debt Of $62,000

It’s stressful living with debt, but imagine dying with a debt of $62,000? According to a new survey, that’s exactly how much Americans are leaving behind, on average, when they pass.

“In fact, 73 percent of consumers had outstanding debt when they were reported as dead, according to December 2016 data provided to by credit bureau Experian. Those consumers carried an average total balance of $61,554, including mortgage debt. Without home loans, the average balance was $12,875,” reported USA Today. Experian’s FileOne database, which includes 220 million consumers, was used to determine the debt.

When breaking down the numbers, among the 73 percent of consumers who died having debt, about 68 percent still had credit card balances; 37 percent had mortgage debt; 25 percent had auto loans; 12 percent still owed personal loans; and 6 percent had outstanding student loans. “These were the average unpaid balances: credit cards, $4,531; auto loans, $17,111; personal loans, $14,793; and student loans, $25,391,” reported USA Today.
