Webinar for Bank Officers, Employees, and Other Stakeholders on FDIC Official Signs and Advertising, Misrepresentations of Insured Status, and Misuse of FDIC’s Name or Logo

In 2024, the FDIC will host four seminars on the final rule governing use of Official Signs and Advertising Statement, Misrepresentations of Insured Status, and Misuse of FDIC’s Name or Logo for bank staff, bank officers, and other stakeholders. The first seminar will be held via Microsoft (MS) Teams on May 30, 2024. The dates for the remaining three seminars will be announced at a later date.

The sessions will offer a broad overview of the final rule that amended Part 328 of the FDIC’s regulations. The FDIC amended its regulations governing use of the official FDIC sign and advertisement statements to reflect how depositors do business with banks today, including through digital and mobile channels. The rule also clarified the FDIC’s regulations on misrepresentations of deposit insurance coverage. The final rule is intended to help consumers understand when they are interacting with an FDIC-insured bank and when their funds are protected by the FDIC’s deposit insurance coverage.

The rule became effective on April 1, 2024, and has a compliance date of January 1, 2025. The sessions are ideal for bank employees and other Part 328 stakeholders looking for further information and guidance on the new final rule.
