FDIC Insurance

Get to know your coverage and ways to ramp it up

You can never be too protected, and FDIC insurance is your safety net in the unlikely event of bank failure. Today's standard limit on FDIC coverage is set at $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each account ownership category. By opening different accounts using varying ownership categories, you can easily expand your coverage.
