An emergency fund is money set aside to deal with emergencies. Here are some example emergencies:

  • Car goes out unexpectedly
  • You lose your job and it takes awhile to fine a new one.
  • A major appliance breaks and needs replaced.
  • You have unexpected major medical expenses.

By having some money set aside for these types of emergencies, you can avoid going into debt for unexpected events.
