Moving back in with your parents after college is not a new concept. But around age 28, it starts to get old.
That’s when the situation begins to get embarrassing, according to a new survey from TD Ameritrade.
That goes for all of the generations surveyed, including young millennials and even younger Gen Z respondents, as well as parents.
