When I began my position as a financial counselor and educator/trainer at the US Naval Submarine Base in Groton, CT, I realized very quickly how vital current, free resources were to military personnel, their families and veterans. So, I’m passing along information about a FREE resource book (which is paid for by our tax dollars). It’s called Consumer Action Handbook.
You can order it by going to www.USA.gov. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “View Publications.” You can order a copy online or call 1-844-872-4681. The publication is also available in Spanish. Consumer Action Handbook is also available as a pdf copy.
Use the Consumer Action Handbook to get help with consumer purchases, problems and complaints. Find consumer contacts at hundreds of companies and trade associations, local, state, and federal government agencies, national consumer organizations and more. Just to mention a few of the topics covered: Buyer Beware, Cars, Credit, Education, Health Care, Insurance, Privacy and Identity Theft and many more topics.
USA.gov is your online guide to government information and services, including a section for job openings in the private sector and federal government. This website is a treasure-trove of information, and I hope you avail yourself of this FREE resource.
It is my desire and hope that I will be writing blogs more frequently on my website. I enjoy writing and passing on financial information which may be helpful to some of you. This past summer, I volunteered at the Mystic Aquarium. I worked many more hours and days than I had anticipated, leaving less time for writing. However, the experience was most enjoyable especially seeing families and particularly young children get so excited with all the fish and marine mammal exhibits. Lessons on conservation and our environment I hope will be long lasting for them – same thoughts I have about lessons on financial literacy!
Thank you for visiting my website and reading my blog. I congratulate you for continuing to pursue more knowledge about financial issues.
