General Description of Collection: When an insured depository institution (“IDI”) is closed by its primary regulatory authority, the FDIC has the responsibility to pay the insured deposits pursuant to Section 11(a) and (f) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act), 12 U.S.C. 1821(a) and (f), and the FDIC's regulations, “Deposit Insurance Coverage”, 12 CFR part 330, and “Recordkeeping for Timely Deposit Insurance Determination”, 12 CFR part 370. In the event that the requisite information is not available in a failed IDI's records, the FDIC will utilize these forms, declarations and affidavits to request the necessary information from a depositor.
Generally, deposits are insured to a maximum of $250,000. 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 $250,000 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 $250,000 coverage per category. For example, as a general rule, single ownership accounts are separately insured from trust accounts held for qualified beneficiaries.
At the time of an IDI's closing, the FDIC obtains information about customer accounts from the IDI's deposit account records. Based on the IDI's records, the FDIC makes determinations about insurance coverage for each depositor. Depositors deemed to be uninsured because their deposits are over $250,000 may qualify for additional insurance coverage if they can provide documentation substantiating eligibility.
a. General Deposit Accounts. The forms, declarations, and affidavits in this collection facilitate customers providing the FDIC with the information that may permit a more comprehensive deposit insurance determination.
b. Deposit Brokers. A failed IDI's deposit account records may not reveal the actual owner(s) of a particular deposit account. Rather, the deposit account records may indicate that the deposit was placed at the insured institution by a deposit broker on behalf of one or more third parties. In some cases, the broker's customer may not be an actual owner of the deposit but merely a “second-tier” deposit broker with its own customers. In turn, these customers could be “third-tier” deposit brokers with their own customers. Deposits held in the name of a deposit broker on behalf of clients are covered by federal deposit insurance (up to the $250,000 limit) the same as if the broker's clients had deposited the funds directly into the insured institution (assuming that the clients are the actual owners of the deposits). This is called “pass-through” deposit insurance coverage.
In order to analyze ownership interest and provide pass-through insurance coverage, the FDIC must obtain certain information from both first- and lower-tier deposit brokers: (1) Evidence that each deposit broker is not an owner but an agent or custodian with respect to some or all of the funds at issue; (2) a list of all parties for whom each deposit broker acted as agent or custodian; and (3) the dollar amount of funds held by each deposit broker for each such party as of the date of the IDI's failure.
There is no change in the substance or methodology of this information collection. The change in burden is due to the FDIC estimating one respondent for certain forms where FDIC previously estimated zero respondents. In the table above, one respondent is being used as a placeholder to preserve the burden Start Printed Page 47969estimate for forms in case they come into use in the future.
Request for Comment
Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will become a matter of public record.
