Who is the FDIC?

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency of the United States government that protects the funds depositors place in FDIC-insured institutions. FDIC deposit insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. Since the FDIC was established in1933, no depositor has ever lost a single penny of FDIC-insured funds.

There is no need for depositors to apply for FDIC insurance or even to request it; coverage is automatic. FDIC insurance covers funds in deposit accounts, including checking and savings accounts, money market deposit accounts and certificates of deposit. FDIC insurance does not cover other financial products that insured banks may offer, such as stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares, life insurance policies, annuities or municipal securities.

What does the FDIC insure?

The FDIC guarantees all traditional types of deposit accounts (checking, savings, trust, money market, CDs) up to $250,000 and guarantees IRAs up to $250,000.

Investment products (mutual funds, annuities, life insurance policies, stocks and bonds) are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and are not bank guaranteed.

What is the insurance limit?

The basic deposit accounts insurance limit amount is $250,000 per depositor per insured bank. Certain retirement accounts (such as Individual Retirement Accounts [IRAs]) are insured up to $250,000 per depositor per insured bank.

If you and your family have a combined amount of $250,000 or less in all of your deposit accounts categories at the same insured bank, you do not need to worry about your insurance coverage, as your deposits are fully insured.

I have accounts in multiple categories at a financial institution.  Are all of my funds insured?

For customers with accounts in multiple categories at a single financial institution, FDIC coverage is based on the titling of the accounts and the category of accounts, not the number of accounts.

For example, a customer who owns a checking account and a CD titled in his or her own name as single owner will receive a total of $250,000 of combined coverage for both accounts.

But if that same customer also has a joint account (which is a separate category from individual accounts), he or she could receive an additional $250,000 of insurance for the funds held in the joint account.
