In addition, the FDIC has developed three separate Deposit Insurance Coverage Seminars for bank officers and employees that are available on the FDIC's YouTube channel. Both the live and the YouTube deposit insurance coverage seminars will provide bank employees with an understanding of how to calculate deposit insurance coverage. The live seminars each provide a comprehensive overview of FDIC deposit insurance.

Deposit Insurance Coverage
Free Nationwide Seminars for Bank Officers and Employees
The FDIC will conduct four identical live seminars on FDIC deposit insurance coverage for bank employees and bank officers between June 6, 2017, and December 4, 2017, via Cisco WebEx conferencing software. In addition, the FDIC developed three separate Deposit Insurance Coverage Seminars for bank officers and employees that are available on the FDIC's YouTube channel. The YouTube seminars are pre-recorded and intended to be used on a self-study basis. Both the live seminars and the YouTube sessions will provide bank employees with an understanding of how to calculate deposit insurance coverage.
The seminar topics have been structured as follows:
This seminar will offer a comprehensive overview of FDIC deposit insurance rules. The session is ideal for bank employees seeking a broad understanding of FDIC deposit insurance coverage rules. For more complex issues, this seminar will refer to the YouTube videos, as described below, for additional information. The live seminars will be followed by a question-and-answer session with FDIC subject matter experts.
The seminars are free, but advance registration is required. Upon completing the registration process, participants will receive an RSVP email confirmation. If you register, but do not receive an email confirmation, verify the email address provided and repeat the registration process.
The email confirmation will contain a "Join the meeting" link that automatically connects to the Cisco WebEx conference software and links participants to the seminar. The session will be available 20 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of each event. If this is the first time you are joining a meeting, you may need to install Cisco WebEx software before you can join the session. You must log in to join Cisco WebEx and dial into a conference call for the audio component of the presentation, including the question-and-answer session.
Registration procedures and instructions for accessing the seminar slide presentations are included in the attachment. The PowerPoint presentation is subject to change based on the adoption of any statutory, regulatory, or policy changes affecting the calculation of deposit insurance coverage.
The objective of the self-study seminars is to provide bank employees with in-depth knowledge of FDIC's deposit insurance rules needed to assist depositors in correctly determining their deposit insurance coverage.
The three self-study seminars are available on the FDIC's YouTube channel:
- "Fundamentals of Deposit Insurance Coverage" provides an overview of the rules for determining coverage for the nine most common account ownership categories. This video presentation lasts 62 minutes.
- "Deposit Insurance Coverage for Revocable Trust Accounts" focuses on the rules for informal and formal revocable trust accounts. This video presentation lasts 47 minutes.
- "Advanced Topics in Deposit Insurance Coverage" focuses on government accounts, mortgage servicing accounts, bank mergers, pass-through deposit insurance coverage as well as other deposit insurance topics. This video presentation lasts 28 minutes.
Participation in the seminars and the YouTube sessions is strictly voluntary and open to employees and officials of all FDIC-insured depository institutions.
