The President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability (PACFC) was created by Executive Order 13530, which was signed by President Barack Obama on January 29, 2010. Its charter is to advise the President on promoting and enhancing financial literacy and capability among the American people. While the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability cannot by federal statute become operational, it is charged with providing financial capability policy recommendations for the nation to the President of the United States. One of the key objectives of the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability is to find ways to improve the financial capability of young Americans.
