Individuals may apply to more than one source of information when seeking financial advice. Financial decisions a person makes voluntarily or under the influence of others can lead to positive or negative results. In this study, the data set was created with the questionnaire applied to the students of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences of Erzincan Binali Yıldırım University who are also known as the generation Z, and their financial help seeking behaviors were examined. A total of 354 students voluntarily participated in the study. The obtained data were analyzed with the chi-square test using the SPSS 22 program. According to the findings obtained from the study, it was determined that approximately 94% of the students had financial knowledge. In addition, it was found that students with financial knowledge have financial help seeking behaviors. Financial help seeking behaviors, however, generally consisted of discussions with the family and no help was sought from experts in the related field.
