Personal Finance FAQ Series: When Should I Use My Emergency Fund?

However, nobody really tells us when we can feel justified in tapping into those reserves. Today’s episode of the Hull Financial Planning Personal Finance FAQ Series deals with that issue. You can also find another example of when to use your emergency fund when I answer a reader question about whether to use her emergency fund after leaving a job.
