Welcome to This is Money, presented in partnership with NS&I. On this episode we're seeing the quicksand deepening for savers, as another base rate cut looms, and savings rates plummet through the floor. Bad news especially those under 30, the so-called Millenials or YOLO Generation. But is it their fault they know so little about money, and have even less hope for the future? We'll also be looking at some spare change that could bring you a mint, critical illness insruance that doesn't necessarily cover you for critical illnesses, and the greatest weapon in the fight against scammers: Information.
