FDIC account insurance

Bank and Account Insurance


Is there an easy way to determine if my deposits are covered?

If you (or your family) have $100,000 or less in all of your deposit accounts at the same insured bank, you don't need to be concerned about the safety of your money. That's because the basic insurance limit is $100,000 per depositor per insured bank, plus an additional $250,000 per depositor for certain retirement accounts.
