Poll: 3 in 4 parents help their adult children with finances

A new poll from CreditCards.com shows about 3 out of 4 parents continue to help their kids pay debts and other living expenses even into their adult years.

The website polled nearly 2,000 adults with children 18 and over and found 74 percent help their kids with living expenses including rent, transportation and even cell phone payments.

Parents who provide financial assistance to their adult children are more likely to be men who have attended at least some college or have higher incomes.
