Bank Accounts (FDIC)

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) provides deposit insurance to financial institutions and depositors of these institutions. If a financial institution is closed by a regulatory agency, the FDIC is appointed as Receiver and is responsible for the payment of insured deposits and the liquidation of the remaining assets. If you did not claim your funds previously you now have another opportunity to do so.

Brokerage Accounts (SIPC)

The Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) either acts as trustee in a missing asset case to recover funds. Customers of a failed brokerage firm receive all non-negotiable securities that are registered in their names. All other so-called "street name" securities are distributed on a pro rata basis. At the same time, funds from the SIPC reserve are available to satisfy the remaining claims of each customer up to a maximum of $500,000. This figure includes a maximum of $100,000 on claims for cash.
