An emergency fund is a specific amount of money that you set aside for periods of uncertainty or suffering. One example is your HVAC breaking in the middle of the summer. Many people don’t even know about the significance of emergency funds until something breaks. Then, once people realize how often disasters, damage, or other inconveniences can strike at any time, preparedness becomes a crucial part of their lifestyle.

Home Equity vs HELOC
Using the equity in your home to pay off unsecured debt and/or make home improvements can be a hard financial decision. Low annual percentage rates, tax-deductible interest, and streamlining your monthly payment makes second mortgages extremely attractive. Meanwhile, using your home for collateral is a decision that should be weighed carefully.
Teens & Money: Checking and Savings Account
One of the first steps toward real freedom (and adulthood) is having a checking and savings account in your own name. These accounts allow you to save money, make purchases, and pay bills efficiently. Both, however, require you to take an active management role, so that you can achieve your goals and avoid errors.
Gone are the days of opening and closing accounts when you want your checking account to start earning an interest. Or upon turning 50, closing your account and opening a new one that offers senior benefits. What a waste of time!
