(Daily Finance) — These days, 20-somethings aren’t just the young and the restless — they’re the young and the anxious. According to The PNC Financial Services Group’sFinancial Independence Survey, that demographic is full of financial fears. The numbers are none too optimistic — less youthful swagger and more stagger. Only 23% of those in their 20s consider themselves financially independent, just 30% have gotten a job in their chosen field, according to the survey, and 40% rely on two or more sources of income, whether that means multiple jobs or withdrawals from the Bank of Mom and Dad. Though 26% overall said they feel they are right on target financially, and another 25% felt they are ahead of where they expected to be, nearly half said they aren’t where they want to be or where they thought they would be.
