The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) will conduct four telephone seminars to review changes to the rules for deposit insurance coverage that became effective on April 1, 2006. These changes, which were mandated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Reform Act of 2005, include an increase in the amount of insurance coverage for certain retirement accounts from $100,000 to $250,000, as well as modifications of the rules for insurance coverage of employee benefit plan accounts. At the end of each presentation, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions about the new rules and other aspects of deposit insurance coverage.
