FDIC ANNOUNCES NEW TELEPHONE SERVICE, "ACTION UPDATE," SUMMARIZING LATEST ISSUANCES AND ACTIONS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PR-41-95 (6-19-95)
 

To improve public access to information, the FDIC is now offering a new telephone service, "Action Update," which provides a summary of the agency's latest actions, publications, and events. Callers receive a recorded message about the most recent press releases and directives to institutions (Financial Institution Letters), as well as brief descriptions of the FDIC Board of Directors' most recent actions, a description of new publications, and a list of significant events.

Callers can access the new service by dialing 202/898-7210 (a toll call outside the Washington, DC, metro area) and following the voice prompts. Anyone wishing copies of the documents referenced in the recorded message may obtain them from the FDIC's Office of Corporate Communications at 202/898-6996.

FDIC press releases and certain other documents also are available through a fax retrieval system. Instructions for using this system can be accessed by choosing Option 5 on the "Action Update" main menu.
