F D I C Insurance
F D I C Insurance
The FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) is an independent agency of the United States government that protects against the loss of deposits if an FDIC-insured bank or savings association fails. FDIC insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. Since the FDIC's creation in 1933, no depositor has ever lost even one penny of FDIC-insured funds.
FDIC General Deposit Insurance Rules
The FDIC's standard maximum deposit insurance amount (SMDIA) is $250,000. All deposits at Ocean Bank are covered with FDIC insurance. The coverage is automatic and includes checking accounts, as well as savings accounts, money market accounts, CDs, and IRAs. The basic coverage amount is $250,000 per depositor.

Deposit Insurance on Revocable Trust Accounts
A revocable trust account is a deposit account that indicates an intention that the funds will belong to one or more beneficiaries upon the death of the owners.
Trust beneficiaries include:
  an individual, regardless of the relationship to this owner. This includes spouse, children, grandchildren,
great-grandchildren, parents, siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews, uncles, in-laws, and friends.
Corporations, partnerships and other legal entities cannot be beneficiaries.
  charity or non-profit organization as defined by the IRS
FDIC deposit insurance coverage for revocable trust accounts is provided to the owner of the trust. The amount of coverage is based on the number of beneficiaries named in the trust and, in some cases, the interests allocated to those beneficiaries, up to the insurance limit. If a revocable trust account has more than one owner, each owner's coverage is calculated separately, using the following rules:
