How long could you make it? How old are you? Have you just recovered from hard times?
We could make it about 2 months I believe. We were in a much better position, but we helped out family and lost money on an investment. We aren't on PA nor do we have government jobs, but if we did we would be in trouble right now. Even if I had 6 months income I'd be worried though. We are quickly saving back up like crazy and discussing radical changes but it is what it is.
Anyone wanna share a little of their story? Even if you'd be fine for a year or you are well off feel free to share how you did it and how hard you worked to get there. Be honest though if our govt continues to fail us financially like this we are ALL in trouble.
I know a couple that just had to deal with losing their income and went through all their savings in 4 months. It was no fault of their own either. They were prepared at the time. 2 issues back to back though and they may be in tons of trouble.
