Watching the effects of Hurricane Harvey unfold, I’ve been wondering if the people being rescued had a “one-pager” they could easily grab on their way out the door.
A “one-pager” may be the best answer to the question, if you could only take one thing before running out of your burning home (or flooding home), what would it be?
The one-pager is a one-page document that lists where your money is and where your debts are. Bank accounts, retirement accounts, other investment accounts, current loans and credit cards, etc. Because when you have to run out of your house with just the clothes on your back, one of the first things you’ll need to do is piece your financial life back together.
