Bank Application Resources – Brokered Deposit Waiver

Section 29 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (“FDI Act”) restricts less than “well capitalized” institutions from accepting brokered and high-rate deposits. An institution with a capital category of “adequately capitalized” may accept deposits from a deposit broker only if it has received a waiver from the FDIC. An institution that has a capital category of “undercapitalized” or worse is prohibited from accepting deposits from a deposit broker. This page includes resources regarding the processing of brokered deposit waiver applications. For more information on brokered deposits, please refer to the Banker Resource Center Brokered Deposits webpage.
