Notice of changes in temporary FDIC insurance coverage for transaction accounts
By operation of federal law, beginning January 1, 2013, funds deposited in a noninterest-bearing transaction account (including COLTAF Trust Accounts) no longer will receive unlimited deposit insurance coverage by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Beginning January 1, 2013, all of a depositor's accounts at an insured depository institution, including all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, will be insured by the FDIC up to the standard maximum deposit insurance amount ($250,000), for each deposit insurance ownership category. We welcome you to contact one of our knowledgeable bankers to discuss available options and for more information regarding FDIC insurance coverage of noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, visit http://www.fdic.gov/deposit/deposits/unlimited/expiration.html.
FDIC Deposit Insurance Coverage
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent government agency that protects depositors against the loss of their insured deposits if an FDIC-insured bank fails. Since the FDIC was founded in 1933, no depositor has ever lost a penny of insured deposits. FDIC insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government to at least $250,000. Insured deposits include:
- Checking accounts, including money market deposit accounts
- Saving accounts
- Certificates of Deposits (CDs)
- Certain retirement accounts
Certain accounts are not covered by FDIC insurance. These include investments in mutual funds (stock, bond or money market mutual funds) whether purchased from a bank, brokerage or dealer; annuities; stocks, bonds, Treasury securities or other investment products; and the contents of a safe deposit box.
Centennial Bank is an FDIC-member bank. Coverage for your insured deposit accounts is automatic and can be increased beyond $250,000 through a combination of accounts. You can calculate your insurance coverage using the FDIC's Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator at www.myFDICinsurance.gov.
