With the $2 trillion economic package just recently approved by the White House, we sit down with the inaugural director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (2012-2017) Richard Cordray to discuss what the package will mean for you, as well as what else you need to know to be protected as a consumer.

If you have questions, call us at 866-893-5722.
