Protecting Your Finances

Release Date: July 2, 2020

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) enforces federal consumer financial laws and protects consumers in the financial marketplace.  It creates rules to implement and enforce laws and preserve choices for consumers – ultimately ensuring financial companies treat you fairly.  

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CFPB is committed to providing you with up-to-date information and resources to protect and manage your finances during this difficult time.  Visit their website to view information on managing your finances, mortgage and housing assistance, student loan information, and learning activities for children.

Your Employee Assistance Program is here to help

DHS cares about your financial health and has resources in place to help.  Your Component EAP can provide financial and legal consultation services or refer you to a screened financial counselor who, in a no-cost initial financial consultation, can provide you help in making sound financial decisions.  Contact your Component EAP specialist or the DHS worklife team at worklife@hq.dhs.gov for more information on programs that can help you protect your financial future.
