New Insurance Publications
Reminder: The FDIC has issued two new publications to help explain federal deposit insurance coverage. One brochure, Insuring Your Deposits, answers basic questions that individuals and families most frequently ask. The other publication, Your Insured Deposits - FDIC's Guide to Deposit Insurance Coverage, is a comprehensive guide to the deposit insurance rules. You can read or download both new publications at www.fdic.gov/deposit/deposits/index.html on the FDIC's Web site. Single copies are available free of charge by completing the online order form at www2.fdic.gov/depositinsuranceregister or by calling or writing the FDIC's Public Information Center (For More Information).
