Parents of Children Between 3 and 21 Years Wanted for Focus Group

Thank you for your interest in participating in the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection focus group on financial well-being.

What is the purpose of this focus group?

The Bureau is interested in helping parents overcome hesitations they might have discussing money topics with their children. This group will focus on parents’ needs for tools and resources that will help them take better control of their money, so they can feel more confident in discussing money topics with their children.

How is the focus group being conducted?

The Bureau has contracted with Information Experts (IE) to host this focus group. An IE employee will meet in person with up to nine parents and caregivers for 90 minutes to discuss their opinions about what financial issues most concern them and what resources they need to address these concerns.

At the completion of the focus group, each participant will receive $50 to compensate them for their time.
