FDIC Insurance

Do you have the facts on FDIC insurance?

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency of the United States government. The FDIC protects depositors against the loss of their insured deposits if an FDIC-insured bank or savings association fails. FDIC insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government.

FDIC insurance covers all types of deposits received at an insured bank but does not cover investments, even if they were purchased at an insured bank.

What the FDIC Covers:

  • Checking accounts
  • Negotiable Order of Withdrawal (NOW) accounts
  • Savings accounts
  • Money Market Deposit accounts (MMDA)
  • Time Deposits such as Certificates of Deposit (CDs)
  • Cashier’s checks, money orders, and other official items issued by a bank

What the FDIC Does Not Cover:

  • Stock Investments
  • Bond Investments
  • Mutual Funds
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Annuities
  • Municipal Securities
  • Safe Deposit Boxes or their contents
  • U.S. Treasury Bills, Bonds or Notes

Deposits at FDIC-insured institutions are insured to at least $250,000 per depositor for each account ownership category.
