Tips
    Have a post-disaster plan

    What if your car is damaged or destroyed? How will your kids get to school and how will you get to work? It may take awhile to get a rental car from the insurance company. If your home is damaged or destroyed, can you stay with family or friends? For those of you who live out in the country, there may not be a hotel nearby so you may have to travel to get to work or school. What if your workplace is destroyed or damaged? You may not get a paycheck for a while. Now is when you need to use your emergency cash reserves – the 3 to 6 months’ of living expenses you put into a savings account for this very event.
