The Department’s mission is to protect and promote the lives of Illinois consumers.

We regulate most of the professionals and financial institutions that Illinois families depend on everyday - from banks to veterinarians and almost everything in between. We also work with the licensed professionals, members of the General Assembly, law enforcement officers, consumer groups and concerned public citizens to make sure that unscrupulous businesses and incompetent professionals can't take advantage of their customers and clients.
