DiNapoli Unveils Comprehensive Personal Finance Resource
New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today launched the Your Money New York Website to help New York’s taxpayers and consumers better manage and protect their money and hard-earned savings. The new Web site offers the latest helpful information on topics such as managing credit and debt, building positive banking relationships, investing for education and retirement, and avoiding common pitfalls and financial scams.
“New Yorkers need access to useful and reliable financial information, especially in these difficult economic times,” DiNapoli said. “We created Your Money New York to help provide our citizens with the programs and resources that can help them meet their financial challenges. Working together, we can help all New Yorkers attain their investment goals, protect their savings and strengthen their financial futures.”
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 is a portal to an abundance of state and federal programs, resources and information.
The easy-to-use, multilingual site includes topics that cover credit cards and consumer debt, home mortgages, savings and investments, insurance and information about 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.
DiNapoli said the broad goals of the Your Money New York Web site include:
- Providing centralized, coordinated access to government resources available to the public;
- Facilitating public use of government services through user-friendly web access;
- Supporting and promoting effective government programs; and
- Capturing opportunities associated with improved access to available government services.
