The FDIC was a reform program set up during the great depression. It was meant to ensure some money in the bank in case of bank failure. If some people's deposits were federally insured that means they couldn't have completely lost all of their money. The FDIC also reduces the devastation to the economy and to the people when a bank fails because they have money insured.  The FDIC is meant to keep public confidence in the United States financial system. The FDIC handled over 370 banks from 1933-1941. Also, deposit insurance has limited the necessity for banks to merge. The FDIC has saved many banks and has also saved a lot of peoples deposits this system greatly helped the United States during the depression. The FDIC also saved some of the people's money with their insurance. They may not have been able to save it all but they still saved some. Every dollar counted during that time and the FDIC has saved many people and many banks. 


The FDIC today is very successful. The law for the maximum deposit insurance raised to a high of  $250,000. Today there are also very high insurance premiums. The FDIC today has also added over 4,500 jobs. Also from 2004-2007, there were 0 bank failures and that is the longest span in FDIC history. Overall the FDIC has helped hundreds of banks and deposits for years.  It has also been bringing strength and confidence to the economy by adding jobs and insuring deposits and the FDIC has only been improving.
