Free financial help just a phone call away

Westchester County has teamed up with the United Way of Westchester and Putnam to offer people some free financial guidance amid the tough economy this holiday season.

The Financial Helpline will give callers access to an array of experts from local banks, credit unions, financial education agencies and more who will be answering all types of financial questions. The helpline will be operating from 4 - 8 p.m. tonight and can be reached by dialing 2-1-1.
