As Hurricane Sandy is affecting the East Coast, millions of Americans are concerned about ensuring that their financial issues are in order. In the midst of the hurricane, it is important to keep a back-up of certain documents accessible. The overarching concern is to be sure you set aside information that allows you to easily replace anything that might be lost in the event. What you keep in your financial emergency kit and where you keep it are both important considerations.
A few of the key items to keep in your kit include paper copies of your plastic payment options, insurance cards, contact information for medical personnel, and contact information for your employer. To see more important items to set aside, please click here.
