We live in a vulnerable world where it’s likely that we – or someone we know – will be affected by an emergency event. Emergencies often come when we least expect it. The Emergency Financial First Aid Kit (EFFAK) is here to help. The EFFAK is a simple tool designed to assist you and your family in maintaining financial stability in the event of an emergency. EFFAK helps identify and organize key financial records and provides a quick reference file for your most important financial documents. One kit per household is recommended, although in the event one kit is used for a couple, all joint and separate accounts and liabilities should be included.
