फैमिली का इमरजेंसी फंड कहां इंवेस्ट करें

बदलते हालात ने हमें यह तो सिखा दिया है कि आनेवाले समय में हमें किसी भी स्थिति के लिए तैयार रहना होगा। जैसे अचानक से नौकरी छूट जाना, सैलरी में कटौती हो जाना, किसी बीमारी के कारण हॉस्पिटल में एडमिट होना, कुछ खास चीजों के खर्चे बढ़ जाना आदि। ऐसी इमरजेंसी के लिए अगर आप पहले से तैयारी करके रखें, तो मौके पर पैनिक होने से बचे रहेंगे। यह भी ध्यान रखें कि इमरजेंसी फंड रातोंरात खड़ा नहीं होता। अगर अभी तक आपने अपनी सेविंग्स को ले कर कोई प्लॉनिंग नहीं की है, तो फौरन करना शुरू कर दें। यह भी ना भूलें कि बैंक में पैसा रखना समझदारी नहीं है, क्योंकि बैंक आमतौर पर आपको 2-3 पर्सेट तक ही ब्याज देते हैं और एक लाख से ऊपर की ब्याज रकम पर आपको टैक्स भी देना पड़ जाएगा। अपनी बचत के पैसों को समय-समय पर किसी ऐसी जगह पर इंवेस्ट करते रहें, जहां से अच्छा रिटर्न मिले।
