Is Investing Your Emergency Fund A Good Idea?

If you want to start building real wealth and reach higher savings goals, you’ll need to put that money to work.

Your Savings Account and Emergency Fund

If you want to grow your net worth, build wealth, and compound your cash, you’ll want to start investing your emergency fund.

Is Investing Your Emergency Fund A Good Idea?

Before you consider investing your emergency fund into the stock market, you should be able to check off a few items first.

1. Firm understanding of investing basics

Be careful about any get rich quick schemes on stocks that you might read or hear about. The goal with investing your emergency fund is to not expose your cash to an insane amount of risk.

2. Stable income and job

A good reason to have an emergency fund is if you were to lose your job or if your income varies (freelance or you work for yourself).

3. You have a side hustle

Before I had started to really invest my emergency fund, I was doing a lot of side jobs and freelance work too. This helped build a decent amount of savings and gave me a financial cushion in case of a job loss on the full-time gig.

4. You aren’t living paycheck to paycheck

Basically, this also goes with having a stable job or side hustle. But if you are not living paycheck to paycheck then it may be a good time to invest.
