What is the FDIC and what does FDIC-insured mean?

The FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) is an independent agency of the United States government that protects you against the loss of your deposits if an FDIC-insured bank or savings association fails. FDIC insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. According to the FDIC, “Since the FDIC's creation in 1933, no depositor has ever lost even one penny of FDIC-insured deposits.” Additional information on FDIC insurance coverage for consumers is available at

What is Covered? What are the Limits?

FDIC insurance covers deposit accounts, including checking and savings accounts, money market accounts and Certificate of Deposit (CDs). FDIC insurance covers the principal and interest of an account, not exceeding the $250,000 limit.
