<iI don't disagree with you, but I am starting to wonder if someone could have too much e-fund.I know that sounds crazy, but when I think about the main reason for an e-fund, which is unemployment, does someone run the risk of getting laxed in their job search or hunt for income if they are sitting on a big nest egg? Should one assume that the e-fund is their only source of revenue or should they have more of a plan in place to have income to at least supplement expenses while they try to make their e-fund last as long as they can? With a plan, they might make a three month e-fund last for six months or more, at the same time, not get used to watching Magnum PI reruns or Oprah.I think it really has to do with the personality of the person... DH and I moved cross-country recently and had an efund. Before we even arrived at our new destination we were looking for jobs. My girlfriend moved a few months later and knew she had to look for employment but pushed it out until she was totally out of money and in a panic state.Had she looked for employment immediately upon arrival, she wouldn't have had several months of panic and wouldn't have depleted her efund.Someone who saves for an 8 month efund isn't likely to be someone who flippantly spends money and is likely to be someone who will be constantly seeking employment.C.
