For National Preparedness Month, City Controller Ron Galperin has released a new online resource: “How to Build a Financial First Aid Kit.”
This interactive tool provides a list of documents and items that should be gathered and stored for safe and easy access if a crisis comes your way. Included on that list: IDs and licenses, legal and financial paperwork, medical info, credentials, emergency contacts, and cash.
Check out the Controller’s Financial First Aid Kit at the link above for the complete checklist of suggested documents, as well as tips on storing these items both physically and digitally, and what tools and apps to use.
