We know how important it is for our customers to know their finances are safe and secure, and a key component in this security is FDIC insurance. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was created by Congress to make sure the money in Americans’ bank accounts is safe. The government has set the current limit on FDIC insurance at $250,000 but if you’re looking to insure more than this you still have options.

Ken at Deposit Accounts recently wrote a blog post that talks about how consumers can maximize their benefits. You can also find details site on the Ally site regarding how to make the most of your FDIC insurance.

If you have any questions about FDIC protection, you can reach us 24/7 by calling 1-877-247-ALLY (2559) or chat live with a customer care representative on Ally.com.

Do you use multiple accounts to insure your money? Have you set up a trust to help maximize your FDIC insurance?
