FDIC Insurance Coverage and You

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has updated it's coverage to strengthen confidence in the banking system. You can have greater peace of mind knowing that your Woodforest deposit accounts are more fully protected during these uncertain economic times.

Basic FDIC Insurance Coverage Permanently Increases to $250,000 per Depositor

Basic FDIC insurance has been permanently increased to $250,000 per depositor. Accounts eligible for FDIC insurance include checking, savings, CDs and money market accounts.

The base coverage amount is $250,000 per depositor for combined deposits in the same FDIC insured bank. However, if you have joint and single accounts, you and a co-owner may be eligible for additional coverage. To calculate how your accounts are covered by FDIC insurance, visit www.fdic.gov. Here you'll find an easy, interactive way to estimate your coverage using Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator (EDIE) . You'll also learn about the benefits and limitations of deposit insurance and what that means for you.

A toll-free consumer assistance line is also available to bank customers at 1-877-ASK-FDIC (1-877-275-3342), and is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. For the hearing-impaired, the number is 1-800-925-4618.
