The FDIC is offering eight telephone seminars for bank employees on the FDIC rules for deposit insurance coverage. The free seminars will be offered weekly, over an eight-week period, starting September 17, 2008. The seminars will be open to employees of all FDIC-insured banks and savings associations.
What You Need to Know to Calculate Deposit Insurance Coverage
The FDIC receives thousands of calls from depositors, bank employees, and other financial industry personnel each month about how to calculate FDIC deposit insurance coverage. The objective of the deposit insurance telephone seminar is to explain the basic information bank employees need to assist their customers in calculating coverage. The presentation will provide an overview of the fundamentals of deposit insurance coverage and review the FDIC rules that apply to depositors with more than $100,000 in one FDIC-insured bank.
The presentation will be approximately one hour followed by a question-and-answer session. A typical Q&A session lasts approximately one hour.
