HelpWithMyBank.gov: The OCC’s HelpWithMyBank.gov Web site provides answers to approximately 250 commonly asked banking questions. While targeted to customers of national banks and federal savings associations (FSA), the Web site has answers to many questions common to all bank and FSA consumers and provides useful information about contacting regulators of state banks, and other financial institutions; and includes an online complaint form for bank customers wishing to register their concerns to the OCC. Information is also available in Spanish. A link from HOPE NOW—an alliance of counselors, mortgage companies, and other mortgage market participants—to HelpWithMyBank.gov has been established.
Financial Literacy Resource Directory: The OCC's Financial Literacy Resource Directory provides information on financial literacy resources, issues, and events of importance to bankers, organizations, and consumers of all ages. The resource directory includes descriptions of, and contact information for, government programs on financial literacy education and capability, and a sampling of organizations whose missions are to support financial literacy through campaigns, fact sheets, newsletters, conference materials, publications, and Web sites.
MyMoney.gov: MyMoney.gov is the U.S. government’s Web site dedicated to teaching consumers the basics about financial education. The redesigned, interactive site includes information from 21 federal agencies and bureaus to help consumers plan for life events with financial implications, such as buying a home, balancing a checkbook, and planning for retirement. The Web site also provides money management tools, such as financial calculators and worksheets.
