Washington, DC — As the United States Congress continues to iron out differences and details on a financial regulatory reform bill, many District residents continue to have questions on how this reform will affect their lives. To continue its focus on protecting consumers’ financial interests, the DC Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking (DISB) is hosting its second community-based town hall meeting to answer questions related to reform, and any other financially related questions, including health insurance reform. Guest panelists from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the US Securities and Exchange Commission and Bank On DC will join DISB in Ward 4. DISB is the District government agency responsible for regulating the financial-services industry here, and for protecting its residents from financial fraud and abuse.
WHAT: YOUR FINANCIAL TOWN HALL MEETING WITH DISB is an educational forum for city residents that will bring them face-to-face with local and federal financial regulators. Residents will learn about financial and health insurance reform, flood insurance options, how to avoid becoming victims of financial fraud, preventing home foreclosures, and various financial literacy and investor education resources.
