In Case of Emergency can a Roth IRA help you?

I came across an article on Roth IRAs and thought what a great In Case of Emergency backup plan.  According to the information I was reading this is a way to tap into the initial funds you deposit in a Roth IRA without a penalty, and use them as  emergency funds.  In Case of Emergency, if you pull money from many other type of investment you may be subject to penalties.  So ask your accountant or financial planner if this is a good backup plan for you, In Case of Emergency.  You should also try to have emergency funds that are separate from a Roth IRA.  Here is the link to the article that will hopefully help you improve on your emergency funds, written by Chris Farrell, “Roth, the emergency-emergency fund”

In Case of Emergency, what would you do if our water was contaminated?  Do you have enough water on hand to survive in case of emergency?

Global Water Shortage Looms In New Century

When most U.S. citizens think about water shortages — if they think about them at all — they think about a local problem, possibly in their town or city, maybe their state or region. We don’t usually regard such problems as particularly worrisome, sharing confidence that the situation will be readily handled by investment in infrastructure, conservation, or other management strategies. Whatever water feuds arise, e.g., between Arizona and California, we expect to be resolved through negotiations or in the courtroom.

But shift from a local to a global water perspective, and the terms dramatically change. The World Bank reports that 80 countries now have water shortages that threaten health and economies while 40 percent of the world — more than 2 billion people.  In case of emergency water shortage is a big deal.  Make sure to sign up for your copy of WalletICE TM.   click here for the balance of this article

In Case of Emergency most of us have had the experience of visiting an emergency room.  O.K., emergency room visits are not a subject many folks like to talk about.  However, In Case of Emergency we need to be prepared.  I created WalletICE TM, to assist medical professionals in gathering your information in one place.  You can click on the link at the top left where it says download a copy.

The amount of emergency room visits is quite surprising.  I certainly did not think the number was so high when I started on this mission 3 years ago.  According to the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, National Center for Health Statics, 2 in 5 persons under the age of 65 are going to an emergency room in a 12 month period.   In 2007 only 10% of those visits were considered non urgent.  You can find more details by reading the entire article on emergency room visits in 2007.  WalletICE TM, In Case of Emergency, Can Save Your Life!  When following up on what’s is happening with WalletICE TM, be sure to put WalletICE into your search engine.  Most search engines like to seperate this word and automatically think you made an error so they convert the data to wallet ice.  Our product is one word WalletICE, not wallet ice.
