Do you have a Family Emergency Fund?

Family Emergency Fund

Most families are only a paycheck or two away from complete financial disaster. Fully 72% of employees surveyed said they’d have difficulty meeting their current financial obligations if their paycheck were delayed for just one week, according to the American Payroll Association.

When Bank On Yourself Professionals (a life insurance agent with advanced training on this concept) complete a financial review with a client, it’s rare that they find a family that has more than $3,000 in liquid cash savings they can tap into in an emergency.

At Bank On Yourself, we define “liquidity” as money you can get your hands on:

  • When you need it
  • For whatever you need
  • Without begging for it or applying for it
  • With no penalties for accessing it and no restrictions
  • Without sustaining a loss

Whether we’re headed into economic uncertainty, or in more stable financial environments, it’s difficult to predict life’s twists and turns.  Life tends to throw us curve balls when we least expect them.

Financial emergencies are a fact of life and can occur at anytime, from your furnace unexpectedly breaking down, to losing your job, to a medical emergency (67% of bankruptcy filers cite illness and medical bills as contributors to financial ruin, according to a 2019 study published in American Journal of Public Health).

The Bank On Yourself concept, and the flexibility it allows, means that you can have access within days to the equity – your cash value – in your policy, without having to run up your credit cards, apply for a loan, or go through the uncomfortable process of begging or borrowing from friends and family. We all know how difficult it is just dealing with emergencies, let alone figuring out how to pay for them. When you Bank On Yourself you can:

  • Pay the money back on your terms, not someone else’s (taking care not to allow your policy to lapse)
  • Avoid late fees and penalties
  • Not have to worry about black marks on your credit report
