Costly house prices and debt problems are thought to be just a couple of the reasons behind an increasing number of adults living with their parents.
Around 73% of people said they had resided with their family at some point as adults, with 10% of couples currently living with one set of parents.
Those living with their families believe they are saving at least £225 per month, even more for childless couples, allowing time to repay outstanding debts and save for deposits for their own homes.
The increase in inter-generational living, particularly long-term arrangements, could result in a rise in remortgage activity as more people look to make home improvements and expand their properties, rather than moving.
Louise Colley, head of protection sales and marketing for Aviva said: "Generally we think of children becoming independent when they reach 18, but it's clear many are relying on their families both financially and practically into their 20s and 30s and beyond.
"There's also evidence of older family members living with relatives for companionship and care, so dependencies can occur at almost any point in families' lives."
