What is deposit insurance?

Deposit insurance through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) protects bank customers in the event an FDIC-insured financial institution fails. It’s available for any deposit account opened at an FDIC-insured bank; there’s no need to purchase it!

Deposit insurance is calculated dollar-for-dollar up to FDIC limits – factoring in the principal amount plus any interest accrued or due to the depositor – through the date of default. The FDIC has created an insurance estimator that you can utilize for more information on how this may personally impact you.
