FDIC Insurance Coverage Up To $1,500,000* Or More

Deposits at each of the affiliate banks within Fulton Financial Corporation are separately insured. By opening accounts at more than one affiliate bank, your deposits can be insured up to $1,500,000* or more. We can discuss your account coverage at any of our offices!

Here are some things you should know about the safety and soundness of Fulton Financial Corporation’s affiliate banks:

  • We are regularly and thoroughly examined by state and/or federal regulators who focus on institutional performance, soundness, risk management and capital adequacy. All of the banks within Fulton Financial Corporation meet the regulators’ definition of being “well-capitalized”.
  • Deposits in each of our banks are insured by the FDIC for up to $250,000 per depositor per insured bank. That means you could have up to $1,500,000* insured at our six affiliate banks. Additionally, IRAs are separately insured for an additional $250,000 per depositor per insured bank.
  • We believe that Fulton Financial Corporation and its six affiliate banks have been conservatively managed. Over the years our affiliate banks have withstood the peaks and valleys of the nation’s economy, and some were established more than a century ago.
  • We are able to accommodate our customers seeking to spread their deposit balance to qualify for additional FDIC insurance by opening additional certificates of deposit for them within our family of affiliate banks.
*This amount of insurance coverage assumes the new $250,000 FDIC Insurance Coverage per account and is based on a single account owned by one person at each of our six separately chartered affiliate banks. On October 3, 2008, FDIC deposit insurance was temporarily increased from $100,000 to $250,000 per depositor through December 31, 2009. In July 2010, this increased insurance level of $250,000 per depositor was permanently extended. Your coverage amount may be different or greater depending on how specific accounts are titled at each affiliate bank. .

 

Notice Of Changes In Temporary FDIC Insurance Coverage For Transaction Accounts

  • NON-INTEREST BEARING ACCOUNTS
    • Beginning January 1, 2013, funds deposited in a noninterest-bearing transaction account (including an Interest on Lawyer Trust Account) no longer will receive unlimited deposit insurance coverage by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Beginning January 1, 2013, all of a depositor's accounts at an insured depository institution, including all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, will be insured by the FDIC up to the standard maximum deposit insurance amount ($250,000), for each deposit insurance ownership category.
    • For more information about temporary FDIC insurance coverage of transaction accounts, visit www.fdic.gov.

  • INTEREST BEARING ACCOUNTS
    • Customers continue to receive up to the $250,000 coverage on their interest bearing balances held on deposit at our institution.
    • Should the balance in your interest bearing account exceed $250,000, we can assist you in maximizing the FDIC coverage in one of two ways:
      • We can review your relationship with us and provide suggestions on how to title your account(s) such that each account is insured to the FDIC maximum.
      • Because we have multiple insured banks within our company and FDIC coverage is based on bank charters, we can help you move some of your balance to any one of our other affiliate banks for coverage up to $1,500,000 (assuming one account at each of our six affiliate banks).
  • Reminder: IRA’s held by one person at a financial institution are FDIC insured up to a combined maximum of $250,000.
  • If you have additional questions regarding FDIC coverage of your specific accounts, please contact a branch representative.
