FDIC by the Numbers

Insuring Deposits. Examining Institutions. Managing Receiverships. Educating Consumers.

In its unique role as deposit insurer of banks and savings associations, and in cooperation with the other state and federal regulatory agencies, the FDIC promotes the safety and soundness of the U.S. financial system and insured depository institutions by identifying, monitoring, and addressing risks to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF).
