When a catastrophe like Hurricane Fiona or Hurricane Ian happens, your world can be turned upside down. During these tough times, it may be difficult to know who to trust and where to look for guidance and assistance, as well as what financial steps to take as you begin recovering.

CFPB’s hurricanes and emergencies guide

We have put together a guide to handling your finances during a disaster or emergency that includes tips for preparing financially, protecting your finances during the emergency, and recovering or rebuilding afterwards.

Within the guide are resources to help you recover, such as tackling housing issues, protecting your finances during an emergency, dealing with property damage, and managing your bills. We also share tips if you are helping others rebuild, to include ways to safely send money through mobile apps.

FEMA has established a Hurricane Ian landing page with the latest information from FEMA and DHS on the storm. The page is also available in Spanish and other languages and is currently promoting response and recovery information and serves as a clearinghouse for related information from DHS.

What the U.S. Government is Doing

The General Services Administration (GSA) has created a Hurricane Ian landing page also available in Spanish for government-wide information related to Hurricane Ian activities.
