FDIC ANNOUNCES NEW TELEPHONE SERVICE, "ACTION UPDATE," SUMMARIZING LATEST ISSUANCES AND ACTIONS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
To improve public access to information, the FDIC is now
offering a new telephone service, "Action Update," which provides
a summary of the agency's latest actions, publications, and events.
Callers receive a recorded message about the most recent press
releases and directives to institutions (Financial Institution
Letters), as well as brief descriptions of the FDIC Board of
Directors' most recent actions, a description of new publications,
and a list of significant events.
Callers can access the new service by dialing 202/898-7210 (a
toll call outside the Washington, DC, metro area) and following
the voice prompts. Anyone wishing copies of the documents
referenced in the recorded message may obtain them from the FDIC's
Office of Corporate Communications at 202/898-6996.
FDIC press releases and certain other documents also are
available through a fax retrieval system. Instructions for using
this system can be accessed by choosing Option 5 on the "Action
Update" main menu.
