In accordance with Governor Lamont's emergency declaration, employees and the public are asked to observe social distancing measures to ensure communal safety and to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). People are asked to work from home and telecommute wherever possible. Adhering to these instructions, the Department of Banking has closed its offices to the public. However, agency staff will continue to provide services to consumers and industry through telework. When contacting the Department, please use electronic communication whenever possible. Agency staff will continue to check voicemails during this time. Consumers are encouraged to use our online form for complaints. If you are unsure where to send an inquiry, you may send it to Department.Banking@ct.gov and it will be routed appropriately. Thank you for your patience during this time.

In addition to its licensing authority, the Consumer Credit Division also administers various laws related to consumer credit issues. Administrative orders relating to consumer credit issues may be found on this web site.

Connecticut is one of five states that the Federal Reserve Board exempts from the federal Truth in Lending Act. This permits local enforcement of the Truth in Lending Law.
