E-Fund as part of Emergency Plans

February 20th, 2011 at 11:22 pm

I've come to like the notion of our e-fund as a component of our Emergency Plans. It is the cash reserves which sees us through the various tragedies we can forsee in our Plans. These Plans include actions we would take, insurance coverage (including unemployment), and family and friend assistance. I'm thinking I might start putting these plans on paper for our reference. Situations to Plan for include:

Either of out deaths
Major car accident (including medical)
Major medical emergency
Natural disaster (fire or earthquake)
Family emergency (parents, siblings, etc)

Any others?

    Unforeseen, expensive, uninsured household expense?


    Unexpected, uninsured car loss? This happened to us when our engine blew up and we were not ready in our car savings to replace it. General emergency fund to the rescue!

    My approach:

    insurance: for auto accidents, lawsuits, disability, death, etc.

    E-fund: natural disaster, unemployment, completely unforeseen and uninsured "catastrophic" events

    savings: medical deductible (known amount), car replacements, car repairs, insurance deductibles (known), home maintenance, dental, orthodontia, smaller unforeseen bills. (Most of this is rather predictable).
