Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program
Guidance to Periodic Debt Balance Reporting
January 12, 2009

Summary: On November 21, 2008, the FDIC's Board of Directors approved the final rule on the Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program (TLG Program), which was announced on October 14, 2008 (see FIL 132-2008). The TLG Program includes a guarantee of newly issued senior unsecured debt of banks, thrifts and certain holding companies (the Debt Guarantee Program). Each entity that participates in the Debt Guarantee Program must report, on a monthly basis, all FDIC-guaranteed debt outstanding in accordance with the signed Master Agreements. This reporting is in addition to the individual debt instrument reporting (see FIL 139-2008).

  • All participating entities that have not opted out of the Debt Guarantee Program of the TLG Program must submit reports of all outstanding FDIC-guaranteed debt in accordance with the signed Master Agreement, regardless of outstanding balance.
  • By the thirtieth calendar day following the end of the month, all participating entities must report through FDICconnect the total amount of all outstanding FDIC-guaranteed debt as of the preceding month's end.
  • Each entity must also indicate whether it has issued any non-guaranteed debt during the reporting period.
  • The participating entity must certify that all information provided is accurate.
