Financial Considerations when Planning to Leave
If you are in immediate danger, call 9-1-1. If you are ready to leave, there are a few things you may be able to do to help with financial safety planning. Your safety comes first, so don't worry about these things if you can't do them safely.

- Social Security Numbers (for yourself, children, and your partner)
- Copies of marriage and birth certificates
- Copies of bank and credit card statements
- Copies of any benefits (public assistance, retirement) or insurance coverage (auto, life, etc.)
