Hi, my name is Godalming158!

I am trying to save up an emergency fund for my wife and children because I was stabbed 19 times and have lot's of operations still to come. I am worried that I will die soon. I just wanted some advice on if I can have an emergency fund while I'm getting disability benefit. If anyone could help me then I would be very grateful.
