Finances for Actors – (Part 7) Emergency Fund

An emergency fund is money that you put into an account in case of a rainy day.

Actors – this is not money you use from one job to the next – it’s money kept for true emergencies.

I like setting up an emergency fund in a money market account (that’s liquid – aka can sell at any time) that doesn’t show up on my online banking, so it’s out of sight and I’m less tempted to spend it.

Experts recommend saving 6-12 months of expenses in your Emergency Fund.
