Changes Have Been Made to Deposit Insurance Coverage - What are They?
The FDIC and its insured members share responsibility
for promoting public confidence in our nation's
banking system. For over sixty-six years, the FDIC
has worked to ensure your customers can trust that
their deposits are protected up to the insurance limit.
However, both consumers and financial institutions
frequently misunderstand deposit insurance regulations.
That confusion can create losses for depositors
if their insured institution fails and they mistakenly
believed their funds were within the insurance limits.
As the first source of information about FDIC insurance,
you have a duty to ensure that employees,
who advise depositors, understand the insurance
rules well enough that they can explain the requirements
To assist our insured members in their training
efforts on the new deposit insurance regulations,
the FDIC will be conducting 24 seminars in 12
cities nationwide from April through June 2000.
These seminars will be half day sessions that your
staff can attend either during the morning from
8:30 a.m.–noon or the afternoon from 1:00 p.m.–
4:30 p.m. Registration for these sessions will begin
at 7:30 a.m. and noon, respectively.
The seminars are intended for training officers,
operations and savings officers, and other employees
who are responsible for overseeing the dissemination
of accurate deposit insurance information. FDIC
staff will provide instruction and educational materials
useful in developing in-house insurance training
programs. A segment of the course will be devoted
to uninsured deposit-like products and how to help
your employees and customers distinguish them
from insured deposits.
As a key representative within your financial
institution you will:
Increase your financial institution's knowledge
and understanding of the FDIC's deposit insurance
rules, with emphasis on the more complex
account ownership categories.
Review recent changes in deposit insurance
Examine the differences between insured deposit
instruments and uninsured deposit-like products
offered by insured financial institutions, and
learn how to help your employees and customers
distinguish between them.
Equip your institution with information and
instructional tools needed to train your branch
office employees on the FDIC's deposit insurance
Each participant will be provided with a Deposit
Insurance Guide, which includes a “Train the Trainer
Guide” to assist in training other financial institution
employees on deposit insurance coverage.
