What is the FDIC? 

          The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency of the           United States government that protects against the loss of insured deposits if an FDIC-         insured bank or savings association fails. FDIC deposit insurance is backed by the full   faith and credit of the United States government. Since the FDIC was established, no     depositor has ever lost a single penny of FDIC insured funds. 

How does the FDIC protect my money? 

          FDIC insurance covers funds in deposit accounts, including checking and savings           accounts, money market deposit accounts and certificates of deposit (CDs). There is no need for depositors to apply for FDIC insurance or even to request it. Coverage is           automatic. 

          To ensure funds are fully protected, depositors should understand their deposit           insurance coverage limits. The FDIC provides separate insurance coverage for deposits      held in different ownership categories such as single accounts, joint accounts, Individual   Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and trust accounts. 

Basic FDIC Deposit Insurance Coverage Limits

          Single Accounts (owned by one person)              $250,000 per owner

          Joint Accounts (owned by two or more persons) $250,000 per co-owner

          IRAs and certain other retirement accounts                   $250,000 per owner

          Corporation, Partnership or unincorporated association accounts

             Funds deposited by a corporation, partnership, or unincorporated association are              

             insured up to a maximum of $250,000. Funds deposited by a corporation, partnership,    

             or unincorporated association are insured separately from the personal accounts of the

             stockholders, partners or members. To qualify for this coverage, the entity must be  

             engaged in an independent activity, meaning that the entity is operated primarily for

             some purpose other than to increase deposit insurance.
