Message from CFPB

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

In this challenging time, you may be facing difficult decisions about which bills to pay first. The Prioritizing bills tool from our Your Money, Your Goals financial empowerment toolkit can help you consider the impact of your choices when money is tight. 

For expenses like utilities, phone and internet, mortgages, or insurance, providers in some areas are offering flexibilities to customers facing financial strain. Check with your service providers or dial 211 or 311 for special resources available to you.

We will be sharing tools and information about urgent financial issues in a series of emails in the coming weeks.

If you have ideas about how the CFPB’s financial education materials and other resources can support the people you serve in your community, please email [email protected].

If you or others experience a problem with a financial product or service you can submit a complaint with the CFPB.

Thank you,

Yuliya Rzad
