Clear, reliable communication is vital to the FDIC’s mission to maintain stability and
public confidence in the nation's financial system. The FDIC publishes regular updates on
agency activities and banking developments in the banking system, the latest FDIC research
and analysis, and educational information for consumers. Follow our news stories, read speeches

To increase the public’s awareness of deposit insurance and how it can protect people’s money in the
event of a bank’s failure, the FDIC developed a national consumer campaign, “Know Your Risk. Protect
Your Money.” The campaign aims to reach those who may have lower confidence in the U.S. banking system
or who are unbanked, as well as those who use mobile payment systems, alternative banking services and
financial products that may appear to be FDIC-insured but are not.
Among the FDIC’s important missions is to help
consumers understand and access our financial system so they
can build a legacy for themselves and their families. The
FDIC Podcast seeks to untangle the myths and mystery of the
banking world and to shed light on how every person can
become part of the financial fabric of this country.
