DiNapoli: Your Money New York Website Provides
Reliable Money Management Information For Women

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced a new section of his Your Money New York Web site to provide financial information and resources for women and their families. The new section offers reliable information on important women’s issues such as job readiness and pay equity, education, child care, eldercare and small business opportunities. Your Money New York (www.yourmoneynewyork.com) is a Web site introduced by DiNapoli earlier this year to provide clear financial information for New York families.

“Women face distinct financial challenges in different phases of their lives,” DiNapoli said. “The new women’s page on Your Money New Yorkis designed to help women achieve their financial goals and build a secure future. Women who have been victims of domestic violence often face great challenges to their financial security. They need clear, direct information on how to rebuild and protect their finances. This new page of Your Money New York gives them that information.”

DiNapoli created Your Money New York to provide New Yorkers with unbiased, factual information they can trust about personal finance, banking relationships, financial services and other fiscal matters. The web site also provides links to local, state and federal programs, resources and information.

DiNapoli said the women’s page of the Your Money New York web site includes sections on:

  • Women and Work;
  • Female Business Owners;
  • Women and Children;
  • Female Higher Education;
  • Women and Retirement;
  • Women’s Health; and
  • Resources for Victims of Domestic Violence.

Your Money New York Web Site
The easy-to-use, multilingual site covers credit cards and consumer debt, home mortgages, savings and investments, insurance and protection against identity theft and financial scams. It also provides access to interactive calculators and DiNapoli’s Open Book New York Web site, which brings detailed information on state and local government finances to taxpayers through a centralized, user-friendly platform.
