FDIC Insurance Protects Your Money Deposits

When you visit a branch or our website, you’ve probably seen the signs that say: “Each depositor insured to at least $250,000.” 

Have you ever thought about what that sign really means?

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was formed to protect the money deposited into accounts at banks covered by FDIC insurance. So your money is protected up to $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each account category.

FDIC coverage separates insured accounts into different categories, such as single accounts, joint accounts, certain retirement accounts and others. These categories cover checking and savings accounts, money market deposit accounts and certificates of deposit. 

As an FDIC Member, the coverage is automatic – so you don’t need to apply for FDIC insurance. 

However, other financial products like stocks, bonds, mutual funds and securities are not covered even if they are invested through the bank.

Stop in to talk with one of our banking professionals to explore ways to set up your accounts for maximum FDIC coverage. 

We’re here to help keep your money secure and protected.

Deposit Insurance Coverage

The more you know, the safer your money.

The FDIC – short for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation – is an independent agency of the United States government. FDIC coverage protects you against the loss of your 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.

All FDIC-insured banks must meet high standards for financial strength and stability. The FDIC, with other federal and state regulatory agencies, regularly reviews the operations of insured banks to ensure these standards are met.

The FDIC insures all deposits, including checking, NOW and savings accounts, money market deposit accounts, and certificates of deposit (CDs), up to the insurance limit.

On July 21, 2010, the deposit insurance coverage for all deposit accounts was permanently raised to $250,000 per depositor, per insured depository institution for each account ownership category. Insurance coverage for certain retirement accounts, which include all IRA deposit accounts, was increased permanently to $250,000 per depositor in 2006.

The FDIC does not insure the money you invest in stocks, mutual funds, life insurance policies, annuities, or municipal securities, even if you purchased these products from an insured bank. The basic insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor per insured bank.
