Don't go it alone. Contact a peer today!
Financial stress can be debilitating. It can ruin marriages, cause sleepless nights and lead to other problems. Having collection agencies calling you at work may leave you feeling like you have no place of refuge. You don't have to go through it alone. There are many others who have been in your shoes. Reach out to a peer or review some of the resources below. If you are a member of the Benevolent, there may be some help available there as well.

Financial Advisor Background Checks:
It is our hope that our members use the links below as an educational tool for the Financial Advisors that may come to the firehouse to ask for your business. You have worked really hard at saving for your retirement and it is important that you take an active interest in your savings account. Simple word of mouth referrals can be costly if you don't do your own investigation into the backgrounds of who you are working with. Just like you would check on a Doctor's or Psychologists license, there are FREE websites that will do an extensive background check of a Financial Advisor or Broker. Please take the time to enter their name and make an educated decision in the links below.
