Floridians are no strangers to hurricane preparedness. In the face of an emergency, we know to secure our property and stock up on nonperishable food and water. But another important aspect of emergency preparedness is often left undone: financial preparedness.
In the aftermath of a hurricane or other emergency, you shouldn’t have to worry about searching for account information or retroactively trying to remember the details about all of your possessions.
Luckily, emergency financial documents are among the easiest things to prepare, ensuring you have everything you need readily available during an emergency. This toolkit is designed to help you organize your financial information before and after an emergency. Keep several copies in safe places that you can access easily and, in the face of an emergency, keep a copy of this toolkit with you at all times.
