Description of An Introduction to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was established by Congress to protect consumers by carrying out federal consumer financial laws. The CFPB works to give consumers the information they need to understand the terms of their agreements with financial companies. The bureau works to make regulations and guidance as clear and streamlined as possible so providers of consumer financial products and services can follow the rules on their own.
The CFPB webinar will provide an overview of the bureau’s mission and its primary functions. It will highlight the work being conducted by the division of Consumer Education and Engagement to protect and inform consumers. The webinar will inform you of CFPB tools, resources and avenues of collaboration available to consumers, service providers and organizations. The webinar will provide valuable information for social services workers and others who work directly with low income and economically vulnerable consumers.
