Changes in Temporary FDIC Insurance Coverage for Transaction Accounts
In December 2010 the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) provided temporary unlimited deposit insurance coverage for noninterest-bearing transaction accounts at FDIC-insured depository institutions. This temporary Dodd-Frank Deposit Insurance Provision is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2012.
Beginning January 1, 2013, all of a depositor's accounts, 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.
The term "noninterest-bearing transaction account" includes a traditional checking account or demand deposit account on which the insured depository institution pays no interest. It also includes interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts ("IOLTAs"). It does not include other accounts, such as traditional checking or demand deposit accounts that may earn interest, NOW accounts, and money-market deposit accounts.
