We’re here to help when you’re having a problem with a financial product or service
We are the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a U.S. government agency that makes sure banks, lenders, and other financial companies treat you fairly.
If you are having an issue with your mortgage, credit card, student loan, or other financial product or service, you can submit a complaint to the CFPB. We’ll work to get you a response from the company.
