Update: April 25, 2005

Notice to Brokers:

As of April 25, 2005, the FDIC has established an online subscription service to allow Brokers to receive information when either of two events occur that may affect you. These two events include:

  1. changes are made by the FDIC to the Depositor Brokers Processing Guide
  2. a financial institution insured by the FDIC is closed.

This new online subscription service is intended to assist you in the following:

  1. the timely identification of any modifications you or your firm may wish to make to your internal processes in response to changes in the filing requirements required in the Deposit Broker's Processing Guide.
  2. prompt notification of the closing of an FDIC insured financial institution in which your firm may have deposited funds.

Please note that information will be sent to all registrants and the subscription service will not be used to communicate with individual Brokers. Therefore, your receipt of information concerning a bank failure will not necessarily be an indication that you or your firm had brokered funds at the failed bank.

If you are interested in receiving information, please register with the Online Subscription Service by providing your Email Address and Occupation or Affiliation. In order to receive the above information, when registering please check the box next to "Deposit Brokers" on the Publication List in the right column.

The sole purpose of this Processing Guide is to facilitate the transmission of information from deposit brokers to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC"). Nothing in this Processing Guide should be construed as an endorsement by the FDIC of the practices of a particular deposit broker. Similarly, the Processing Guide should not be construed as a statement of how the FDIC will calculate the insurance coverage of a particular deposit. The rules for determining the deposit insurance are provided in the FDIC's regulations at 12 C.F.R. Part 330.

Also, note:

This site is intended to:

  1. Provide a reference guide to deposit brokers acting as agents for their investor clientele. This site outlines the FDIC's policies and procedures that must be followed by deposit brokers when filing for pass-through insurance coverage on custodial accounts deposited in a failed FDIC Insured Institution.
  2. Provide copies of forms and a submission file format that Deposit Brokers must use to provide information for the FDIC to determine pass-through deposit insurance coverage on each custodial account. This information may be downloaded for your convenience.

To Deposit Brokers' Investors:

The FDIC must receive the custodial fund information directly from the Deposit Broker who opened the deposit account at the failed FDIC insured institution.
