FAQs

Are all types of deposit accounts fully insured in a bank providing both FDIC and DIF insurance?

Yes. All types and classes of deposit accounts, both personal and business, are covered including savings accounts, checking and NOW accounts, certificates of deposit (CDs), money market deposit accounts, and retirement deposit accounts.

Does the DIF insure investments in bank mutual funds or annuities?

No. Both the FDIC and the DIF insure only bank deposits, and do not insure bank mutual funds or annuity products.

Is the DIF a federal or state agency?

No. The DIF is a private, industry-sponsored insurance company and is not backed by the federal government or the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

How financially strong is the DIF?

No depositor has ever lost a penny in a bank insured by both the FDIC and the DIF. The DIF has approximately $500 million in assets. During the recession of the early 1990s, the worst financial period in the history of the Massachusetts savings bank industry, the DIF paid out more than $50 million to protect over 6,500 depositors in 19 failed member banks. Yet the DIF emerged from this period financially stronger than before the recession began.
