Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
March 6, 1998
What happens to your money if your bank goes bankrupt? As a result of the New Deal, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation protects consumers against bank failure. FDIC's Web site has information for both the consumer and the bank employee. You can search for information on your financial institution, read about FDIC's history and involvement with the Year 2000 problem, and get the facts on the Savings and Loan crisis with this "Chrono-Bibliography." Parents, educators and kids can cash in at the "Learning Bank."
