The FDIC has released two new resources to help bankers and depositors understand FDIC deposit insurance coverage:
- The FDIC’s most popular consumer brochure, “Your Insured Deposits,” is now available in a large- print version for visually impaired individuals; and
- The new “FDIC Deposit Insurance Coverage for Bankers,” a self-paced, computer-based training module targeted to a banker audience, is now available in an interactive format on FDIC’s website, on DVD, and in a Portable Document Format (PDF).
The large-print brochure is 8.5”x11” in size and uses an 18-point font, the standard font size recommended by the American Printing House for the Blind. Insured institutions may order copies of the new large-print brochure from the FDIC at no charge. This version of the brochure is available in English only; a Spanish version will be released at a later time.
The training module, FDIC Deposit Insurance Coverage for Bankers, is designed for use by insured institutions to train employees who need a basic understanding of how FDIC insurance coverage works. It explains the different account ownership categories and the FDIC’s rules for coverage of a depositor’s funds in accounts over $250,000. The module is available in an interactive format, on DVD, and in PDF. English and Spanish versions of the training module are available. Use of any FDIC deposit insurance training materials, including the two new products referenced in this FIL, is voluntary.
