How to Save an Unemployment Emergency Fund

It is not as impossible as it seems to save an emergency fund if you are in the lower to lower-middle class income brackets.

Tax Refunds

These will be your biggest lump sum payments of the year and should make up the lion's share of your emergency fund.

Pay Period Contributions

Try to set aside some amount like $25-200 a pay period to put into your emergency fund savings. Make sure to pay yourself first.

'Extra' Bi-Weekly Paychecks

If you are on a bi-weekly pay schedule, once every six months, you should get an 'extra' check a month that is unbudgeted. You should find out when these dates are and plan your budget in those months accordingly to make sure you only use the two normal paychecks you receive. Then take the 'extra' check and put it in your emergency fund savings account.

Unexpected Windfalls

When you receive money that you didn't plan on, put it in the emergency fund savings. Do not be tempted to fritter it away!

Side Jobs and Gigs

Most people can earn money on the side doing part-time work, temporary work, selling things on eBay, and doing gigs on Craigslist. This money should also be funneled into the emergency fund until the fund has reached its goal.

The main idea should be to create a budget based only on your guaranteed monthly income and everything else goes straight into the emergency fund until you have reached your goal of 3-8 months of baseline expenses, such as rent/mortgage, insurances, utilities, and food/gas. 3 months should be your minimum goal. Particularly in this economy, no one knows how long the the unemployment might last 3 months is optimistic, but 6 months worth of funds is more realistic. The more money you have saved, the better.

When possible, you should put your money in a high yield savings account where you have quick access to the money while it works for you. The vast majority of brick and mortar banks and credit unions will only offer a pittance for what is in your savings account, sometimes as low as nothing at all. Internet banks tend to offer competitive interest rates, ATM/debit cards, and have check writing available. Several internet banks like HSBC offer refunds of ATM fees outside of their network. Unfortunately, interest rates have dropped very low even on most internet savings accounts, but there are still some decent deals left. You can compare and contrast offers at bankrate.com.
