Millennials, or those born between 1980 and 1998, face unique financial situations relative to the general population. With increasing levels of educational loans and debt, many choose to live with their parents as a means of financial support, thus resulting in differing financial behaviors when compared to Millennials who live independently. This paper analyzes the effect of parental coresidence on debt, asset ownership, and asset values. We find evidence linking parental coresidence with decreases in magnitude and likelihood of having debt, along with significant differences in "risky" and "safe" asset ownership and valuations. Moreover, we find causal evidence that parental coresidence is used as a mechanism to decrease general debt.

The associations between and among general human capital, financial management behavior, and social capital with an individual's financial position following bankruptcy are examined in this study. Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979, the significance of each type of capital or practice associated with two separate measures of financial well‐being following bankruptcy are estimated. Results indicate that individuals who possess higher levels of general human capital, social capital, and normative financial management behavior are significantly more likely to both recover financially following bankruptcy, as well as experience lower levels of financial distress when compared to individuals with similar amounts of nonfinancial capital. Study results suggest that postbankruptcy education programs should encourage human and social capital development in addition to financial education as a means to increase the likelihood of financial wealth accumulation following bankruptcy. Implications for financial planners include the consideration of clients' general human capital and social capital when seeking to mitigate potential shocks to client's financial capital.
