FDIC Approves Final Rule of Assessments, Dividends, Assessment Base and Large Bank Pricing


The Board of Directors of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) on February 7 approved a final rule on Assessments, Dividends, Assessment Base and Large Bank Pricing. The rule, which is quite detailed and complicated, implements changes to the deposit insurance assessment system mandated by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and revises the assessment system applicable to large banks to eliminate reliance on debt issuer ratings and make it more forward-looking. Dodd-Frank required that the base on which deposit insurance assessments are charged be revised from one based on domestic deposits to one based on assets, and that the amount of assessments collected be revenue neutral as between the current system (based on liabilities) and the new system (based on assets). FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair said, "The rule should keep the overall amount collected from the industry very close to unchanged, although the amounts that individual institutions pay will be different."
