Financial Contingency Plan

Q: I was recently laid off from my job and am trying to prepare a smart financial contingency plan until I secure another position. My savings can float me comfortably for 3 months but what you do I suggest after that point? I am not sure if it is better (or worse) to tap into my retirement funds or survive on credit cards. Please let me know if you have any tips that apply.


I would start with focusing on making your expenses last more than 3 months. You can do this by reducing some of your fixed expenses such as late fees, bank charges, newspaper delivery and cable tv. Then give yourself a weekly amount to live on so you are clear about how long your savings will last.

Before you start dipping into your retirement funds or charging up a storm, consider looking for freelance work in your industry or even short-term consulting projects. It will keep you present in your industry and will bring in some temporary income. You can also look for a part-time job in a place you like to spend time in; such as a yoga studio, knitting store or sporting goods store.
