Emergency Financial Plan

By: Steve Johnson

6/3/2008 - 15 Comments

If everything goes wrong, what's your emergency financial plan?

The primary reason for having an emergency fund worth 3-6 months of your household income is to help out when an emergency financial need comes your way.  Like an unexpected medical bill or if you get laid off.

But, suppose you don’t have an emergency fund. What would you do if you suddenly ran into financial trouble?  Here are a few things I would consider,

1) Move in with parents or other relatives

2) Sell everything I can including cars

3) Find more income, rent room in my house to college student

4) Borrow against retirement funds or house equity

5) Move retirement money into someone else’s name for safety

6) Sent kids to work to help out

Empire of Debt

Many Americans have resisted the notion that their country is an imperial power. The idea seems to contradict the values of the Republic and its Founding Fathers. But in Empire of Debt, prominent financial analysts Bill Bonner and Addison Wiggin argue passionately that not only is the United States an empire, but it is also one whose end is coming soon.
