FDIC increase to $250,000 is permanent

You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your accounts at Peoples Federal Savings Bank are insured up to $250,000 per depositor by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

The temporary increase in FDIC insurance coverage from $100,000 to $250,000 per depositor had an initial deadline of December 31, 2010, and then an extended deadline to carry the increased coverage through December 31, 2013. Now, the $250,000 coverage provided by the FDIC is permanent. This includes deposits and accumulated interest in savings accounts, checking, and interest-bearing transaction accounts, money market accounts, and term deposit accounts such as certificates of deposit.
