The Financial Services Roundtable (FSR) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) joined forces in January 2015 to create a public-private initiative to promote and encourage financial education across the country.
FSR works together with the CFPB to facilitate the understanding and sharing of information about financial education strategies, with a focus on encouraging financial education in K-12 schools, in the workplace, and in preventing the financial exploitation of older Americans.
This page houses resources for consumers highlighting related financial education initiatives and offerings from FSR member companies and from the CFPB. The CFPB is not affiliated with offerings from FSR member companies.

This report provides a conceptual framework for defining and measuring success in financial education by delivering a proposed definition of financial well-being, and insight into the factors that contribute to it. This framework is grounded in the existing literature, expert opinion, and the experiences and voice of the consumer garnered through in-depth, one-on-one interviews with working-age and older consumers.
The CFPB has FREE financial education brochures, bookmarks, fact sheets, fliers, worksheets, and posters that can be downloaded and distributed in the community.
