2 Basic Reasons You Need to Build a Financial Safety Net

(All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy)

Image Credit: Pixabay

Achieving financial security is a long game and many people won’t feel comfortable with their earnings until middle age. This means that you need to start building your financial safety net as soon as possible.

You don’t need to be earning loads to make small contributions to your emergency fund each month. Just putting 10% of your earnings into a savings account will be enough to start building up and you might not even notice it’s absence in your monthly spend.

If you want to save more aggressively there are a few methods you could try to increase your earnings at home. By starting up a home business that takes relatively little effort, like a blog or a craft shop, you could quickly increase your monthly income without feeling like you are working two jobs. You should also look at your utility bills to see whether you can cut down on energy costs by switching providers.

Ideally your emergency fund will grow to be the equivalent of around 3-6 months earnings, but the reality is that if you can get into the habit of saving each month, then your fund has the potential to grow much larger. The reason to aim for 3-6 months initially is that if you lose your job or you are unable to work, this period will be covered while you find a new opportunity or claim for compensation.

The important thing to remember is that when life throws you lemons, you shouldn’t just make lemonade, you should set up a stand and see where you can benefit financially.

You Could Sustain an Injury

Accidents happen all the time and though most of them aren’t serious, you could find yourself losing a few days at work as a consequence. Of course, if you have set up your emergency fund you will be able to compensate yourself for the lost wages on these days.

But what if you are in a car accident and you have large medical bills to cover and a vehicle to replace too?

Your financial safety net isn’t just about having the emergency fund to cover yourself, it is also about knowing when to hire a legal team to help with your personal injury case. A legal team might sound expensive, but the compensation that they can help you win after your accident makes them well worth the comparatively small expense.

Though you might think that a personal injury case is simple, if you are unfamiliar with legal proceedings, it is all too easy to lose your case and come away with nothing. Think of your legal council as an investment into the compensation you not only deserve, but need. They are a part of the safety net that will arrest your fall. So use them.

You Could Lose Your Job

The most common use for an emergency fund is the loss of a job. While you should make full use of your emergency fund in this case, you should also be aware that you must try to eek it out for as long as possible. This means that you should reign in your current lifestyle and reduce your weekly costs.

However, the fund should be used to make an investment into your future. This might be something as simple as buying a new interview suit or it could be something bigger like going on a course to boost your employability.

If you find yourself unemployed and not sure what to do, the best thing to do is try and get a short contract as a bartender or shop assistant that you can work part time. This will help to boost your income a little, taking the pressure off your emergency fund, and you will also be able prepare for interviews - and go to them! - in your time off.

When you are prepared for financial uncertainty, you will find that you are more relaxed in general and much more comfortable. There is something reassuring about knowing that if it all went wrong tomorrow, you would have just enough cash to start building your life back up again.

Though saving can be difficult, especially if you are on a low income, even a few dollars here and there will slowly but surely give you an emergency fund. The faster and more aggressively you save, the sooner you will reach your target for your emergency fund, but equally, you have to enjoy life too.

Find a balance between enjoying yourself and saving and you might just have found the key to financial success.
