The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act has made permanent the current SMDIA of $250,000. (The SMDIA was otherwise scheduled to return to $100,000 on January 1, 2014.)
The FDIC has updated the FDIC official sign for advertising deposit insurance coverage as prescribed in Part 328 of the FDIC's regulations.
Insured depository institutions may order FDIC official signs from the FDIC, free of charge, at https://catalog.fdic.gov/.
The FDIC encourages all insured depository institutions to acquire and post the new official sign without delay to increase depositor awareness of the permanent increase in deposit insurance coverage.
All of the FDIC's deposit insurance coverage materials posted on its website - including "EDIE," its Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator - have been updated to reflect the permanent $250,000 coverage.
