FDIC Deposit Insurance Coverage

The standard insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each ownership category.

The following chart shows standard insurance amounts for FDIC account ownership categories. All deposits that an accountholder has in the same ownership category at the same bank are added together and insured up to the standard insurance amount.

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 www.fdic.gov/deposit/deposits).
