The Consumer Action Handbook is one of the most popular publications offered by the federal government, and the 2013 edition of the free 160-page booklet is ready for reading.

As in previous years, the handbook has tips on an array of subjects, including retirement benefits, disability insurance, nutrition, car buying and how to avoid online scams. Find an updated list of contacts at government agencies, local consumer protection offices and bank and insurance regulators; there is also a listing of consumer contacts at many major companies in case you would like more information or want to complain about a purchased item.

There's a downloadable PDF copy of the handbook at bit.ly/cah-2013; or, order a free print copy at bit.ly/cah-printcopy.
