Congress created the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 1933 to restore public confidence in the nation's banking system. The FDIC insures deposits at member banks and savings associations, and it promotes the safety and soundness of these institutions by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to which they are exposed. The FDIC receives no federal tax dollars; insured financial institutions fund its operations.
