The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Good morning,

Our second annual report on financial literacy has just been published, and we wanted to share it with you. The report describes what we’re doing to help consumers navigate the financial marketplace and build financial capability.
Read the report to learn about our work on financial literacy:

Empowering people to take more control over their economic lives is essential to our mission. That’s why we’ve made financial education a critical component of our work. We help consumers with the financial aspects of big life decisions, such as going to college, retiring, or buying a home; and on smaller decisions that can have big life consequences, such as starting a habit of savings, managing debt, and passing along financial life skills to one’s children.
We’re working to reach consumers nationwide through online tools and information; through schools, workplaces, and libraries; and by integrating financial capability training into other programs and services. We also undertake efforts tailored to the needs of specific populations, such as servicemembers, students, older Americans, and consumers who have low incomes or are otherwise economically vulnerable.
We encourage you totake a lookat our annual report on financial literacy.
Thank you,
Gail Hillebrand
Associate Director for Consumer Education and Engagement
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
