ONLINE RESOURCES

Financial Wellness Self-Assessment:

Click on the following links to be directed to financial wellness self-assessments created by Consumer Finance and CNN. These assessments are intended to be used as tools to explore your financial health and provide brief financial education.

If after completing both assessments, you need additional assistance with your finances or are at increased financial risk, please consider setting up an appointment with an EAP counselor to discuss your results. Please call 716-681-4300 or SUBMIT A REQUEST HERE. A counselor can help you work through the results and/or refer you to a financial counselor. You do not have to navigate your finances alone.


FRAUD RESOURCES
    1. Report the fraud to the NY state unemployment benefits office agency by filing a fraudulent claim report on the NYS Department of Labor website by clicking on this link: Report Unemployment Insurance Fraud (ny.gov) or by contacting them at (888) 209-8124 during the hours of operation: Monday – Friday 8:00 AM – 7:30 PM.
    2. Keep any confirmation or case number you get. If you speak with anyone, keep a record of who you spoke with and when.
    3. Visit IdentityTheft.gov: Identity Theft Recovery Steps | IdentityTheft.gov to report the fraud to the FTC and get help with the next important steps. These include placing a free, one-year fraud alert on your credit, getting your free credit reports, and closing any fraudulent accounts opened in your name. IdentityTheft.gov also will help you add a free extended fraud alert or credit freeze to your credit report. These make it more difficult for an identity thief to open new accounts in your name. Review your credit reports often.
