What is a Safety Net goal?

Our Safety Net goal is intended to help you save and invest funds that can be used for a future emergency or unexpected expense. Your emergency fund should contain enough money to cover your basic expenses for a minimum of several months.

Rather than keeping your emergency funds in cash, which may lose value to inflation over time, we’ll invest your funds into a moderate-risk portfolio. The allocation of stocks and bonds we use in a Safety Net goal is 30% stocks and 70% bonds.
