Deposit Insurance Banker Survey
Survey to Evaluate FDIC's Deposit Insurance Publications and Resources

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) invites all FDIC-insured financial institution officers with responsibility for oversight of savings and deposit operations to participate in a survey about the FDIC's existing deposit insurance coverage resources. The survey's purpose is to help the FDIC evaluate its existing publications, job aids and other tools intended to help bank employees understand FDIC deposit insurance coverage. The survey will be available until December 16, 2005. Bankers can complete the survey by clicking on the following link http://www.keysurvey.com/survey/85666/5075/.

The survey will ask a number of questions about the FDIC's educational resources for bankers on deposit insurance coverage, including:

• Have you seen the FDIC's educational resources?
• Are you using the materials to educate your staff and/or customers?
• How do you rate the effectiveness of the current materials?
• What information, if any, is being provided by your bank to customers and staff?
• Where do you get the information your bank uses regarding deposit insurance coverage?

In addition to this FIL inviting bankers to participate in the survey, the FDIC will send an e-mail message (from its Deposit Insurance Coverage @fdic.gov mailbox) to bankers listed on the Call Report Bank Contact List. That invitation will also ask bankers for their participation in the survey directly from their computers. If the e-mail message is received by a bank official who is not a compliance officer or does not have oversight responsibility for savings and deposit operations, we will ask that the official forward the e-mail message to the appropriate bank officers so that they can participate in the survey.

For more information about the survey, contact the FDIC Call Center toll-free at 1-877-275-3342.
