AROUND one in five (19%) adults have less than £100 in savings, according to a building society.
Indicating a widening gap in the UK’S financial wellbeing, a similar proportion (20%) of people have managed to increase their monthly savings during the pandemic.

It found that 21% of people are not saving, compared with 12% when similar research was carried out in 2019.
