- A new Insider poll found 23% of Americans who owe a rent or a mortgage payment on Friday aren’t sure they’ll be able to pay it.
- While 77% of respondents said they were set to make this month’s payment, 12% said they don’t have the money and 10% said they aren’t sure if they’ll have all of it.
- The results come as the latest sign of increasing financial concerns from the pandemic, which cities like New York, D.C., and Los Angeles have addressed with policies like moratoriums on evictions, but there’s no such relief at the national level.
- Housing data previously found that about a third of renters did not pay rent to their landlord for the month of April.
