The Institute, the AICPA Foundation, the National Endowment for Financial Education and the American Red Cross jointly published Disasters and Financial Planning: A Guide for Disaster Preparedness, which CPAs can use to help consumers obtain insurance and take other loss-mitigation steps before a catastrophe occurs. “Protecting the public interest is CPAs’ primary mission,” said AICPA Director of Financial Planning Anat Kendal, “and this guide will help us fulfill it.” The publication is available online at www.redcross.org/services/disaster/beprepared/finrecovery/finplan and from Red Cross chapters nationwide.
