The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) today issued a Request for Information (RFI) on consumer financial education. The Bureau is seeking comments and information from interested parties to assist the Bureau in assessing the overall efficiency and effectiveness of its consumer financial education programs. This includes the Bureau’s delivery of financial education through online tools, print publications, and community collaborations. This the 11th in a series of RFIs announced as part of Acting Director Mick Mulvaney’s call for evidence to ensure the Bureau is fulfilling its proper and appropriate functions. This RFI will provide an opportunity for the public to submit feedback and suggest ways to improve outcomes for both consumers and covered entities. The next RFI in the series will address consumer inquiries, and will be issued next week.
The RFI on consumer financial education is available at:
The CFPB will begin accepting comments once the RFI is printed in the Federal Register, which is expected to occur on approximately April 9. The RFI will be open for comment for 90 days.
