|TO:|| CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
|SUBJECT:|| Revision of The Financial
Institution Employee's Guide to Deposit
| The FDIC has revised its publication The
Financial Institution Employee's Guide to Deposit
Insurance, which explains the FDIC's
rules for deposit insurance coverage in a concise
and non-technical way. The guide was originally
published for a series of seminars conducted
for financial institution staff in the summer
Every federally insured financial institution must ensure that its staff provide accurate and complete information about FDIC insurance coverage to its depositors. Bank and thrift employees who deal directly with depositors must understand the rules that govern deposit insurance coverage well enough to be able to explain them clearly and accurately.
This publication is a helpful guide to the deposit insurance rules for financial institution training staff, operations and savings officers, and others responsible for dissemination of deposit insurance information at financial institutions. The guide includes instructional materials designed to assist insured institutions in developing in-house training programs on deposit insurance, including a set of tests on calculating deposit insurance coverage.
Enclosed is the revised version of The Financial Institution Employee's Guide to Deposit Insurance for your institution's use. It is now in a loose-leaf format to facilitate as-needed duplication by institutions. The guide is also available via the Internet on the FDIC Web Page (www.fdic.gov) in PDF format.
For further information, please contact the Division of Compliance and Consumer Affairs at 1-800-934-3342.
