FDIC INSURANCE COVERAGE BASICS
The FDIC - short for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation - is an independent agency of the United States government. The FDIC protects depositors of insured banks located in the United States against the loss of their deposits if an insured bank fails.
FDIC insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. Since the FDIC began operation in 1934, no depositor has ever lost a penny of FDIC - insured deposits.
Like any type of insurance, you must understand how it works and stay within the coverage limits in order to be fully protected. The standard deposit insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each account ownership category.
