Notice of Expiration of the Temporary Full FDIC Insurance Coverage for Non-Interest Bearing Transaction Accounts
Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Effective January 1, 2013, federal laws have changed so that funds deposited in a non-interest bearing transaction account (including an Interest on Lawyer Trust Account, or “IOLTA” or “IOLA”) will no longer receive unlimited deposit insurance coverage by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the “FDIC”). Your deposit account(s) at ProGrowth Bank, including all non-interest bearing transaction accounts, will continue to be insured by the FDIC up to the standard maximum deposit insurance amount ($250,000), for each deposit insurance ownership category.

FDIC Deposit Insurance Coverage Increased  

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency of the United States government that protects against the loss of insured deposits if an FDIC-insured bank or savings association fails. FDIC deposit insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. Since the FDIC was established, no depositor has ever lost a single penny of FDIC insured funds.

FDIC insurance covers all deposit accounts at insured banks and savings associations, including checking, NOW, savings accounts, money market deposit accounts and certificates of deposit (CDs) up to the insurance limit. The FDIC does not insure the money you invest in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, life insurance policies, annuities or municipal securities, even if you purchased these products from an insured bank or savings association.

There is no need for depositors to apply for FDIC insurance or even to request it. Coverage is automatic.

To ensure funds are fully protected, depositors should understand their deposit insurance coverage limits. The FDIC provides separate insurance coverage for deposits held in different ownership categories such as single accounts, joint accounts, Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and trust accounts.

Basic FDIC Deposit Insurance Coverage Limits

Single Accounts (owned by one person)    $250,000 per owner
Joint Accounts (two or more persons) $250,000 per co-owner
IRAs and certain other retirement accounts    $250,000 per owner
Trust Accounts $250,000 per owner per beneficiary subject to specific limitations and requirements

These deposit insurance coverage limits refer to the total of all deposits that an accountholder (or accountholders) has at each FDIC-insured bank. The listing above shows only the most common ownership categories that apply to individual and family deposits, and assumes that all FDIC requirements are met. 

If you have questions about FDIC coverage limits and requirements, please visit, call toll-free 1-877-ASK-FDIC, or ask a representative at your bank.
