FDIC Consumer News

Fall 2013

Our 20th Anniversary

Audio (MP3 2.80 MB)

Twenty years ago, the FDIC did something unusual for a federal government agency – it started a consumer newsletter. From the first issue in the Fall of 1993, the goal of our quarterly FDIC Consumer News has been to deliver timely, reliable and practical tips and information about money matters, free of charge.

Each issue offers helpful hints and common-sense strategies on topics ranging from finding the right bank account to protecting against fraud and simplifying your financial life. And we know from the results — including media coverage of our topics and the mail we receive from consumers — that our newsletter is helping people become smarter, safer users of financial services.

To find current and past issues or to subscribe to FDIC Consumer News, see this edition's home page.
