Changes Have Been Made to Deposit Insurance Coverage - What are They?

The FDIC and its insured members share responsibility for promoting public confidence in our nation's banking system. For over sixty-six years, the FDIC has worked to ensure your customers can trust that their deposits are protected up to the insurance limit.

However, both consumers and financial institutions frequently misunderstand deposit insurance regulations. That confusion can create losses for depositors if their insured institution fails and they mistakenly believed their funds were within the insurance limits.

As the first source of information about FDIC insurance, you have a duty to ensure that employees, who advise depositors, understand the insurance rules well enough that they can explain the requirements accurately.

To assist our insured members in their training efforts on the new deposit insurance regulations, the FDIC will be conducting 24 seminars in 12 cities nationwide from April through June 2000. These seminars will be half day sessions that your staff can attend either during the morning from 8:30 a.m.–noon or the afternoon from 1:00 p.m.– 4:30 p.m. Registration for these sessions will begin at 7:30 a.m. and noon, respectively.

The seminars are intended for training officers, operations and savings officers, and other employees who are responsible for overseeing the dissemination of accurate deposit insurance information. FDIC staff will provide instruction and educational materials useful in developing in-house insurance training programs. A segment of the course will be devoted to uninsured deposit-like products and how to help your employees and customers distinguish them from insured deposits.

Seminar Objectives

As a key representative within your financial institution you will:

  • Increase your financial institution's knowledge and understanding of the FDIC's deposit insurance rules, with emphasis on the more complex account ownership categories.
  • Review recent changes in deposit insurance regulations.
  • Examine the differences between insured deposit instruments and uninsured deposit-like products offered by insured financial institutions, and learn how to help your employees and customers distinguish between them.
  • Equip your institution with information and instructional tools needed to train your branch office employees on the FDIC's deposit insurance coverage.

Each participant will be provided with a Deposit Insurance Guide, which includes a “Train the Trainer Guide” to assist in training other financial institution employees on deposit insurance coverage.
