Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator (EDIE)

EDIE is a tool that assists IDI employees and consumers in calculating deposit insurance coverage. The calculator is ideal for analyzing actual deposits established or hypothetical examples that depositors or IDI employees may wish to explore for the amount of FDIC deposit insurance coverage that may be available. Please note that no personally identifiable information is necessary to access EDIE’s calculations. After the user enters the account information, EDIE generates a printable report clearly showing the amount of insurance coverage for the user’s accounts. EDIE can be used to calculate the insurance coverage of single, certain retirement, joint, revocable or living trust/ITF/POD, government and business accounts. For irrevocable trust accounts, depositors and IDI employees should contact the FDIC at 1-877-275-3342 to discuss their specific situations.
