Unfortunately, the bills don't stop when there is a disaster. Even if your home is destroyed, you still have to pay the mortgage. Financial problems are often the most stressful part of recovering after a disaster. Here are some steps from Ready.Georgia you can take now to make recovery easier:
1) Make copies of all your important documents (homeowners insurance policy, bank account information, etc.) and store them in a waterproof container in a secure location, like in your Ready kit.
2) Keep some cash in your Ready kit. In the event of a disaster, your area may not have power. In this case credit cards would not help you, and banks and ATMs may be closed.
