Have you ever thought about what might happen to you financially if you were temporarily laid off or unable to work because of a sickness or an injury? What about those unexpected costs that can derail your budget, such as car or home repairs?
Establishing an emergency fund can help ease your mind. Your emergency fund should be able to cover three to six months of pay.
But how do you start an emergency fund? Easy. Pay yourself first. Try to set aside a percentage of each paycheck and have it automatically deposited into a secure, but accessible savings plan.
With a little effort, you’ll be surprised at how quickly an emergency fund begins to grow and how quickly you adjust to your “new” income stream.
