Safe, Sound and Secure
All Deposit Balances are 100% Insured
Savers Bank provides depositors with peace of mind for the security of their savings with the bank. In addition to FDIC Insurance customer deposits are fully covered under Depositors Insurance Funds (DIF). DIF is a private, industry-sponsored insurance fund that insures all deposits above Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) limits. DIF has been insuring deposits since 1934. All DIF member banks are also members of the FDIC. The FDIC insures each depositor to at least $250,000. All deposits above the FDIC insurance amount are insured by the Depositors Insurance Fund (DIF). The combination of FDIC and DIF insurance provides our customers with full deposit insurance on all their deposit accounts. No depositor has ever lost a penny in a bank insured by both the FDIC and the DIF. DIF insurance coverage requires no applications or special forms. Depositors automatically receive this added insurance benefit at no cost whenever they make a deposit to a new or existing account at a DIF member bank.
