Phoenix (Jan. 13, 2003) -- The American Institute of CPAs and the National Endowment for Financial Education have issued a disaster recovery guide to help consumers deal with the financial issues surrounding disaster, the groups announced this week.

Several CPA financial planners contributed to the guide, which is divided into three sections: issues individuals need to deal with in the first few days following a disaster; longer term issues that must be considered, and future preparedness, AICPA director of Personal Financial Planning Anat Kendall and Nan Mead, director of communications for NEFE told reporters at a press briefing this week.

The guide will be distributed to AICPA member firms and members of the AICPA's PFP division. The institute also plans to form alliances with other national organizations to distribute the guide to the public.
