FDIC Insurance Changes




By operation of federal law, 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.
