FDIC by the Numbers

Insuring Deposits. Examining Institutions. Managing Receiverships. Educating Consumers

In its unique role as deposit insurer of banks and savings associations, and in cooperation with the other state and federal regulatory agencies, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) promotes the safety and soundness of the U.S. financial system and the insured depository institutions by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF).

The FDIC promotes public understanding and the development of sound public policy by providing timely and accurate financial and economic information and analyses. It minimizes disruptive effects from the failure of financial institutions. It assures fairness in the sale of financial products and the provisions of financial services.

The FDIC’s long and continuing tradition of excellence in public service is supported and sustained by a highly skilled and diverse workforce that continuously monitors and responds rapidly and successfully to changes in the financial environment.

At FDIC, we are working together to be the best.
