The hot line, 1-888-USA-4-Y2K, will offer information provided by government agencies, companies and industry groups on areas such as telecommunications, banking, government programs and household products, the council said.

Prerecorded information will cover most common topics and be available seven days a week, 24 hours a day, the agency said. In addition, information specialists will staff the hot line from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday.
