How much to you need to save?
Find out if you could weather a financial crisis by using a calculator from CFED. The calculator will help determine how much in liquid savings (cash, retirement and checking) your household would need to get by at the poverty level in the event that an emergency left them without income. How much a household would need in liquid savings to avoid falling below this conservative threshold varies by household size.
