Back to Finance Glossary | Previous Page

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or FDIC, is the U.S. government agency that guarantees the repayment of the public's deposits in U.S. banks and thrifts up to a maximum of $100,000.

During the financial crisis of 2008, the FDIC temporarily increased the maximum insured deposit up to $250,000 because of the historic number of bank failures that occurred.

The FDIC also assesses insurance premiums that must be paid by depository institutions offering federally insured deposits.
