As a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insured institution, deposits at Apple Bank receive full FDIC coverage of up to $250,000 per depositor, for each account ownership category. FDIC insurance covers all types of Apple Bank deposit accounts, including personal and business checking accounts, Certificates of Deposit, savings accounts and money market accounts.
However, a depositor at an FDIC-insured bank, such as Apple Bank, can maintain more than $250,000 in deposits and still be fully insured, provided the accounts meet certain requirements. The FDIC provides separate coverage for deposits held in different account ownership categories. The coverage limits shown in the chart below refer to the total of all deposits that an accountholder has in the same ownership categories at each FDIC-insured bank.

Single Accounts (owned by one person)
$250,000 per owner
Joint Accounts (two or more persons)
$250,000 per co-owner
IRAs and certain other retirement accounts
