66 per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds would rather talk about health issues than money.

That’s compared to just 21 per cent of those aged 65 to 74.

While a third of those aged 35-44 are open to advice from their parents.

But that drops to just 11 per cent of the over-65s who are willing to receive the same support from their children.

The OnePoll survey also found two thirds of young people said speaking about money with family or friends leads to arguments.

But this figure falls to just 23 per cent of 55 to 64-year-olds.

Overall, the study of 2,000 adults found 35 per cent think money is a more awkward subject to discuss than health problems.

While SWNS Digital also report more than a quarter (27 per cent) struggle to open up to friends about finances.

The study also found 55 per cent of adults agree people should be more open when it comes to talking about money.

But, those aged 35 to 44 feel it is a difficult topic to raise with their parents.

So what were the top reasons people didn’t like talking about money?

  • People flaunting wealth to those worse off
  • Those who try make others jealous
  • Making people feel insecure
