FDIC’s Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator (EDIE) lets consumers and bankers know, on a per-bank basis, how the insurance rules and limits apply to a depositor’s specific group of deposit accounts—what’s insured and what portion (if any) exceeds coverage limits at that bank. EDIE also allows the user to print the report for their records.
- EDIE can be used to calculate the insurance coverage of all types of deposit accounts offered by an FDIC-insured bank, including:
- - Checking Accounts
- - Savings Accounts (both statement and passbook)
- - Money Market Deposit Accounts (MMDAs), and
- - Certificates of Deposit (CDs)
