An emergency fund is a savings account that you can use in times of financial difficulty. This emergency fund calculator can help you estimate exactly how much you will need to save for your emergency fund to last your desired timeframe. With its detailed breakdown of the incomes and expenses this tool can show you areas that have the potential for reductions in spending. This tool differs from other emergency fund calculators as it has a future event facility which allows you to forecast your savings into the fund, with a summary of how much the funds will last. An example of how this would be beneficial would be in anticipation of a future job loss due to COVID19.
