Member FDIC - Equal Housing Lender - Consumer SAFE Act
The FDIC -short for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation - is an independent agency of the United States government. The FDIC protects depositors against the loss of their insured 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.
If your accounts at Ameriana FDIC-insured bank or savings association total $250,000 or less, your deposits are fully insured. A depositor can have more than $250,000 at one insured bank or savings association and still be fully insured provided the accounts meet certain requirements.
Please Contact Us if you have any questions about FDIC coverage.
