The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has developed unbiased financial advice for dislocated workers in a brochure that tells them how to protect themselves from
investment fraud, avoid job scams and keep their finances on track during a period of unemployment.

FINRA is the largest non-governmental regulator for all securities firms doing business in the US and oversees 4,700 brokerage firms covering 635,000 registered securities representatives. FINRA was created in 2007 through the consolidation of a number of organizations including components of the New York Stock Exchange.

The brochure includes specific advice for unemployed individuals on how to check the background of investment professionals and find information about potential job scams from FINRA, and the state and federal regulators as well as other consumer protection agencies. The brochure also outlines how to prepare financially for a period of unemployment, how to make decisions to preserve retirement funds and what steps to take to start the search for a new position once your company announces a planned layoff.
