The Emergency Financial First Aid Kit (EFFAK) is a simple tool to help Americans minimize the financial impact of a natural disaster or national emergency. It helps users identify and organize key financial records and serves as a quick reference to their most important financial documents.

The Emergency Financial First Aid Kit  offers easy step-by-step instructions for how to protect personal assets and financial information, and reduce the challenges associated with emergencies and disasters. In 2005, the document became a registered federal government document, listed as FEMA publication #532. The Emergency Financial First Aid Kit  is the first free emergency financial reconstruction and economic recovery guide for disaster victims.

We also have a companion piece to the Emergency Financial First Aid Kit , the Personal Disaster Preparedness Guide (PDPG) which will guide you through steps you can take before a disaster strikes.
