Delays in Mail Delivery

There is the potential for mail service provided by the United States Postal Service (USPS) to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) address in Washington, DC to be disrupted, causing delays in mail delivery to the FDIC. The delays are the result of measures that the USPS has taken to protect federal employees from various security issues. The FDIC address affected is:

550 17th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20429

Considering these circumstances, you may wish to send any time-sensitive mail to FDIC addressees in Washington, DC, using alternative services. Private overnight carriers, electronic mail and facsimile transmission are possibilities.

The FDIC can receive mail in its offices in Arlington, Virginia, which has not been affected by the security issues. Should you choose this alternative, please use the following address:

3501 N. Fairfax Drive
Arlington, VA 22226

Please remember to include the addressee's name and room number when using the Virginia address.
