1933's FDIC

Today's FDIC

   The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Also known as the FDIC does not cover the financial products or the services that the bank might offer to the customers who go to their banks. For example stocks, bonds, mutual funds, life insurance policies, annuities or securities. The current limit is $250,000 per depositor, per bank. Traditional checking or savings account is not insured by the FDIC.

  The FDIC was created in 1933. It is called the 1933 Banking Act. This act was to restore the trust in the banking system for the Americans. More than 1/3 of the banks failed in the years before the act came out. The insurance limit was initially $2,500 per ownership category.The 1935 Act gave the FDIC authority to pay off depositors directly or through an existing bank, and once that was granted, the FDIC ceased using the DINB for the next 29 years. In addition to this act, they added the ways in which a payoff could be affected. This means the FDIC has the authority to make loans.
