Because we’re reaching peak fire and hurricane season across the country – not to mention for “2020 reasons” – here is a reminder about AICPA disaster recovery resources:
The AICPA Benevolent Fund was created to support AICPA members with short-term personal financial needs. For example, the fund can potentially help individuals experiencing temporary loss of income, increases in cost of living, insurance deductibles, and replacement costs associated with natural disasters. The fund is focused on individual members, rather than businesses. Kati McDaniels and Melissa Parker are the administrators. Visit the Benevolent Fund website to download an application for assistance or reach out to Kati or Melissa with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disaster Recovery Guide
The AICPA Disaster Recovery Guide is an easy-to-read tool for members and the public created in partnership with the American Red Cross. It includes several good checklists to follow, both before and after an unfortunate event.
