Although salaries have risen significantly in recent years, by more than 15%, the period that can be bridged without a wage has not increased, according to the K&H Safe Future survey, writes profitline.hu.
The survey revealed that 30-59-year-olds could bridge an average of seven months.
However, 35% of them could cover their expenses for a maximum of one month if they did not get paid, the financial institution said; 14% have enough reserves for six months.
Meanwhile, a quarter of those affected cannot or do not tend to put money aside.
This proportion has increased significantly, as this was true for only 18.4% a year earlier.
