Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)

The FDIC is an independent agency created to maintain stability and public confidence in the nation's financial system by insuring deposits, examining and supervising financial institutions for safety and soundness and consumer protection, making large and complex financial institutions resolvable, and managing receiverships. The FDIC was established by the Banking Act of 1933, commonly known as Glass-Steagall, signed by President Franklin Roosevelt on June 16, 1933.
