When a disaster strikes, your financial well-being may not be your initial concern. But, after the threat has passed and you start to look at rebuilding, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin financially. Even if you are well prepared and have a rainy-day fund, recovering financially from a disaster is difficult. However, there are many resources and trained individuals available to help you. MyMoney.Gov has a page dedicated to financial recovery resources including phone numbers for counselors to help you get started. The Red Cross has general information about how to replace lost or damaged vital records and a free guide for disasters and financial planning. DisasterAssistance.gov and USA.gov can help you find local resources and apply for assistance. Even if you have not experienced a disaster, these resources can help you prepare for the unexpected.
