SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposal to revise the following currently approved collection of information:

Title: Deposit Broker Processing.

OMB Number: 3064-0143.

Affected Public: Deposit brokers and depositors of failed insured institutions.

Information about the Collection: When an insured institution is closed by its primary regulatory authority, the FDIC has the responsibility to pay the insured claims of the failed bank depositors pursuant to Federal Deposit Insurance Act and the FDIC's Deposit Insurance Coverage regulation, 12 CFR part 330. Generally, deposits are insured to a maximum of $100,000. This maximum coverage is based on “ownership rights and capacities.” All deposits that are maintained in the same right and capacity are added together and insured up to $100,000 in accordance with the regulations relating to deposit insurance of that particular deposit insurance ownership category. Deposits held in different ownership categories are eligible for $100,000 coverage per category. For example, as a general rule, single-ownership accounts are separately insured from trust accounts held for the benefit of others.

In order to assist the FDIC in paying deposit insurance to persons who had deposited funds in a failed depository institution through a deposit broker, the FDIC requests deposit brokers who opened a deposit account in a failed institution to provide the FDIC with information about the parties for whom the broker acted as agent and the amounts of their deposits. An essential element of this collection is an electronic file from every broker that provides information about its customers and their accounts, including: each customer's name, address, tax identification number, ownership interest in the account, principal balance of the account and interest earned on the account. The FDIC also has developed forms to assist in determining account ownership and the availability of “pass-through” deposit insurance coverage where the account balance exceeds $100,000. The FDIC form numbers are 7200/03, /04, /05, /06, /07, /08, /09, /10, /11, /12, /13, /14, and /15.

The FDIC uses these same forms to determine whether individual account holders at failed institutions may receive pass-through deposit insurance coverage. The FDIC's use of these forms for individuals has been approved by OMB under PRA control number 3064-0150 (expires September 30, 2007).

In order to facilitate public access to the common forms and to improve administrative efficiency, the FDIC proposes to consolidate the two OMB approved collections into a single collection titled, “Forms Relating to Processing Deposit Insurance Claims,” under the 3064-0143 control number.
