FDIC Deposit Insurance has permanently increased from $100,000 to $250,000 per depositor. The FDIC insures deposit accounts such as checking, NOW and savings accounts, money market deposit accounts, and certificates of deposit (CDs). The basic insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor per insured bank. If you and your family have $250,000 or less in all of your deposit accounts at the same insured bank, you do not need to worry about your insurance coverage. Your funds are fully insured.
