If times are tough for you and your family, we can help connect you with the tools and information you need to get back on your feet.

We're launching "Help for Difficult Financial Times" and for the next five weeks, we will highlight government resources with a focus on jobs, housing, credit, family, and health that you can use to make your life easier.

Examples of highlighted information include

  • how to apply for unemployment benefits and food stamps
  • where to get credit counseling
  • how to avoid foreclosure
  • where to find free or low-cost care.

You can sign up to receive these helpful resources directly in your inbox a few times each week. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get daily tips or to ask a question.
