change in revocable and irrevocable trust rule effective April 1, 2024 change in mortgage servicing account rule effective April 1, 2024
All rules discussed in this section are effective through March 31, 2024. The fdic approved changes, on January 21, 2022, to the deposit insurance rules for trust accounts revocable (including formal trusts, pod/itf), irrevocable trust accounts, and mortgage servicing accounts. For most trust depositors (those with less than $1,250,000), the fdic expects that coverage levels will not change. however, the new rule may reduce coverage for those depositors who have placed more than $1,250,000 per owner in fiduciary deposits with an insured institution. The new rule (pdf) combines the irrevocable and revocable trust account categories into one insurance category, eliminates some complex rules, and uses a simple insurance calculation. You can learn more about the new changes, including for mortgage servicing accounts, by reviewing this fact sheet (pdf). The changes take effect on April 1, 2024, giving bankers and depositors time to adjust to the new rule, including making changes to avoid a possible reduction in coverage. We suggest depositors and bankers review the new rules for time deposits maturing after April 1, 2024.

Deposit insurance is one of the significant benefits of having an account at an fdic-insured bank: it’s the fdic’s way of protecting your money in the unlikely event of a bank failure. the standard amount of insurance is $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each category of account ownership. And you don’t have to buy deposit insurance. If you open a deposit account at an fdic-insured bank, you’ll be automatically covered.
