FDIC Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator

Calculate your insurance coverage using the FDIC's online Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator (EDIE). EDIE will help you identify, on a per-bank basis, how the insurance rules and limits apply your specific group of deposit accounts – what's insured and what portion (if any) exceeds coverage limits. EDIE calculates insurance coverage for both personal and business accounts.

EDIE should not be used to calculate coverage on mutual funds, stocks, bonds, annuities, or any other investment that is not a deposit. This includes investments that were purchased through an insured bank.

Click here to start using EDIE now.

If you have questions regarding your EDIE or your deposit insurance coverage, give us a call or stop by any of our convenient branch locations.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency of the United States government that protects against the loss of insured deposits if an FDIC-insured bank or savings association fails. FDIC deposit insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. Since the FDIC was established, no depositor has ever lost a single penny of FDIC-insured funds.

FDIC insurance covers funds in deposit accounts, including checking and savings accounts, money market deposit accounts and certificates of deposit (CDs). FDIC insurance does not, however, cover other financial products and services that insured banks may offer, such as stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares, life insurance policies, annuities or municipal securities. The standard insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each account ownership category. There is no need for depositors to apply for FDIC insurance or even to request it, coverage is automatic.

The FDIC provides separate coverage for deposits held in different account ownership categories. Depositors may qualify for more coverage if they have funds in different ownership categories and all FDIC requirements are met. For details on the requirements, go to
