Hi, I'm Lori Greer from Atlanta, Georgia, and I'm here to explain how do I insure funds in my account after FDIC insurance? Just a little history, in 1933, Congress established the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or FDIC due to 4,000 banks closing that year, causing creditors to lose their deposits. Currently, the limit has been increased from 100,000 dollars to 250,000 dollars. And that's good through December 31st, 2013. Because the bank itself has to pay the insurance premium to the FDIC, there's no way for an individual to increase his coverage. Nor do other insurers offer supplemental coverage. However, due to the way the FDIC covers accounts, you can work around this and spread your deposits over multiple accounts, at multiple banks, and protect larger amounts. Again, I'm Lori Greer from Atlanta, Georgia. and that's how you insure funds in your account after FDIC insurance.
