Statement of Applicability to Institutions under $1 Billion in Total Assets: This Financial Institution Letter (FIL) applies to all FDIC-supervised institutions.


  • The presentation provides an overview of some of the most popular deposit insurance resources such as the FDIC's Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator (EDIE), which is an interactive tool used to calculate deposit insurance coverage; the FDIC's BankFind Directory, which allows users to confirm if a bank is FDIC-insured; and the FDIC's Financial Institution Employee's Guide to Deposit Insurance, which was developed to assist bankers in providing detailed information about deposit insurance coverage to their customers.
