Understanding Deposit Insurance
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency of the United States government that protects the funds depositors place in banks and savings associations. FDIC insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. Since the FDIC was established in 1933, no depositor has lost a penny of FDIC-insured funds.
Consumer Protection Information
The FDIC recognizes the importance of providing consumers with useful information to help them make informed decisions about their money and to protect themselves against financial scams and fraud.
