Notice Requirement Implements Dodd-Frank Act Provision on Unlimited FDIC Coverage for Noninterest-Bearing Transaction Accounts


On November 9, 2010, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's Board of Directors issued a final rule implementing Section 343 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Section 343 of the Dodd-Frank Act provides unlimited insurance coverage for noninterest-bearing transaction accounts at all insured depository institutions (IDIs) from December 31, 2010, through December 31, 2012. The final rule imposes certain notice requirements, including the requirement that if an IDI modifies the terms of a deposit account so that the account no longer will be eligible for unlimited deposit insurance coverage, the institution "must notify affected customers and clearly advise them, in writing, that such actions will affect their deposit insurance coverage." As explained in the preamble to the final rule, this notice requirement is intended primarily to apply when IDIs begin paying interest on a demand deposit accounts (DDA), permitted beginning July 21, 2011, under Section 627 of the Dodd-Frank Act.
