paying the bills tops list of worries for hard-pressed brits in 2012

February 1, 2012

Having enough money to pay the bills is the number one concern for hard-pressed Brits in 2012, according to new research from Bacs, the people behind Direct Debit.

One in four British adults said that keeping up with bill payments is the thing that worries them most, ahead of the general economic situation, the state of their own health and keeping their job.

Bacs carried out the research among 2,000 British consumers for the launch of its new campaign The Big Break, which will give bill payers the chance to win a £10,000 ˜big break" from their household bills.

The results of the study reveal that simply having enough to pay the bills is the main worry for a quarter of people (25 per cent). The general economic situation is also perhaps unsurprisingly playing on wallets and minds, with a similar amount (24 per cent).

There also seems to be a distinct lack of positivity on the work front with only 11 per cent saying they were positive about keeping their job in 2012 while just seven per cent state they are most hopeful about the wider economic situation improving.

The Big Break campaign which highlights ways Direct Debit can save people time and money as well as provide peace of mind through having their finances organised is supported by utility companies, local councils and service providers (including Eazipay) which are offering customers who switch to paying their bills by Direct Debit the chance to win £10,000. On top of that, each Direct Debit signed will trigger a donation to charity.
