This year there are 20 American billionaires under the age of 45. The youngest member is Dustin Moskovitz. The 29-year-old Facebook FB -0.99% cofounder has been the youngest billionaire in the country since he first appeared on the list in 2010. This year his net worth has nearly doubled to $5.3 billion, thanks to his 5% stake in the ubiquitous social network.

Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook CEO, comes in as the second-youngest FORBES 400 member, just 8 days older than his former Harvard roommate Moskovitz. Zuckerberg, however, has nearly 3 times as large of a fortune. His estimated net worth is $19 billion, up from $9.4 billion last year as the stock returned to its IPO heights. That’s good enough for him to rank as the 20th wealthiest person in the country.
