Joint Birthday Statement.pdfThe Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) turns five years old this week. It was
created after the 2008 financial crisis to bring basic standards of fairness and transparency to
the world of credit cards, checking accounts, mortgages, student loans, payday and car-title
loans, auto loans, checking accounts, debt collection, credit reporting, and other financial
products and services.
Five years later, our organizations join in celebrating the important changes the CFPB has
already made, and in eager anticipation of the work to come. Individual statements attached.
