Nearly half of U.S. adults say they are unsure about seeking financial advice in 2014.

Only 16 percent of Americans say they intend to include financial planning in their New Year’s resolutions for 2014. That’s less than half of the 33 percent who said they would make financial planning a high priority when making resolutions in 2009, according to a new survey from Allianz Life.

Nearly half (49 percent) of U.S. adults polled by the company say they are unsure about seeking financial advice in 2014, up from 44 percent the previous year. This percentage, the report indicates, points to greater sense of financial stability that Americans feel after receiving financial advice compared to past years.
