The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) mission is to make markets for consumer financial products and services work for Americans — whether they are applying for a mortgage, choosing among credit cards, or using any number of other consumer financial products. Congress established the CFPB to protect consumers by carrying out federal consumer financial laws and the CFPB. In this interview, Gail Hillebrand, Associate Director for Consumer Education and Engagement at the CFPB, will explain what the agency is doing to protect consumers in many areas including: Mortgages and mortgage servicing, Payday loans, Student loans, both federal and private, Mandatory arbitration provisions in consumer contracts, Bank deposit regulations, Financial education and literacy efforts, Credit card act enforcement, Auto financing, Fair Lending practices, and Empowering lower income Americans.
