9

How do funds owned by an individual in a revocable trust account with beneficiaries receive insurance coverage?

They will be insured up to the total number of different beneficiaries multiplied by the SMDIA (as long as each beneficiary has an equal share in the account).

10

In order for revocable trusts to receive insurance coverage based on the beneficiary designations, how must the account be titled?

The titling of the account must reflect the owner's intention that upon his/her death, the funds int he account pass directly to the named beneficiaries.

For informal trusts, POD, ITF, ATF

11

Does a beneficiary have to be a natural person to receive FDIC insurance coverage?

No, it may be a natural person, charitable institution or other nonprofit entity.

12

What is the special rule for accounts with more than 5 times the SMDIA and more than 5 beneficiaries? What accounts does this apply to?

If an account balance is greater than $1.25 million and has more than 5 beneficiaries, the insurance will be limited to the greater of 5x the SMDIA or the aggregate amount of the interests of each beneficiary on the account, limited to the amount of the SMDIA for each beneficiary.

This rule applies to revocable trust accounts only.

13

Where the owners of a revocable trust account are themselves the sole beneficiaries, the account will be insured as a ______ account.

joint

14

Account Owner "A" has a payable-on-death account naming his niece and cousin as beneficiaries, and A also has, at the same FDIC-insured institution, another payable-on-death account naming the same niece and a friend as beneficiaries. What is the maximum insurance coverage available to the account owner?

The maximum coverage available to the account owner would be $750,000. This is because the account owner has named only three different beneficiaries in the revocable trust accounts--his niece and cousin in the first, and the same niece and a friend in the second. The naming of the same beneficiary in more than one revocable trust account, whether it be a payable-on-death account or living trust account, does not increase the total coverage amount.)

15

Account Owner "A" establishes a living trust account, with a balance of $300,000, naming his two children "B" and "C" as beneficiaries. A also establishes, at the same FDIC-insured institution, a payable-on-death account, with a balance of $300,000, also naming his children B and C as beneficiaries. What is the maximum insurance coverage available for the account owner?

The maximum coverage available to A is $500,000, determined by multiplying 2 times $250,000 (the number of different beneficiaries times the SMDIA). A is uninsured in the amount of $100,000. This is because all funds that a depositor holds in both living trust accounts and payable-on-death accounts, at the same FDIC-insured institution and naming the same beneficiaries, are aggregated for insurance purposes and insured to the applicable coverage limits.)

16

Account Owner "A" has a living trust account with a balance of $1,500,000. Under the terms of the trust, upon A's death, A's three children are each entitled to $125,000, A's friend is entitled to $15,000, and a designated charity is entitled to $175,000. The trust also provides that the remainder of the trust assets shall belong to A's spouse. What is the maximum insurance coverage available to the account owner?

In this case, because the balance of the account exceeds $1,250,000 (5 times the SMDIA) and there are more than five different beneficiaries named in the trust, the maximum coverage available to A would be the greater of: $1,250,000 or the aggregate of each different beneficiary's interest to a limit of $250,000 per beneficiary. The beneficial interests in the trust for purposes of determining coverage are: $125,000 for each of the children (totaling $375,000), $15,000 for the friend, $175,000 for the charity, and $250,000 for the spouse (because the spouse's $935,000 is subject to the $250,000 per-beneficiary limitation). The aggregate beneficial interests total $815,000. Thus, the maximum coverage afforded to the account owner would be $1,250,000, the greater of $1,250,000 or $815,000.)

17

A and B, two individuals, establish a payable-on-death account naming their three nieces as beneficiaries. Neither A nor B has any other revocable trust accounts at the same FDIC-insured institution. What is the maximum insurance coverage available for the account holders?

The maximum coverage afforded to A and B would be $1,500,000, determined by multiplying the number of owners (2) times the SMDIA ($250,000) times the number of different beneficiaries.

18

Funds held by a fiduciary, agent, and so forth for 2 or more persons will be considered to be a _____ account for the two principals.

Funds will be aggregated and insured up tot he SMDIA.

Timothy Edwards inherited some money from his father and decided to put the funds in several accounts at First National Bank. Timothy has an individual savings account with a balance of $1,400,000. He and his wife, Sylvia, have a savings account with a balance of $750,000. They also have a joint NOW account with a balance of $280,000. In addition, they have the following trust accounts for their children, John and Suzanne: Timothy, trustee for John (balance $195,000); Timothy, trustee for Suzanne (balance $195,000); Sylvia, trustee for John (balance $120,000); Sylvia, trustee for Suzanne (balance $120,000).

a. $1,380,000
b. $1,660,000
c. $1,130,000
d. $1,140,000

a. $1,380,000

The individual savings account owned by Timothy is covered as a single ownership account. $250,000 of it is insured. The savings account and NOW account are joint ownership account and is separately insured, but only for a total of $250,000 for each owner. The rest is uninsured The other trust accounts would be insured for the full balances since each person presumably owns a half interest and each half interest is less than $250,000.

ABC Bank failed with the following accounts for Fred Jones on its books:

The interest is not insurable because it would put the account over the $250,000 limit.

The FDIC will rely only on the bank records in this case. The intention to make the account a revocable trust must be reflected on the records of the account. The IRA is fully insured. The revocable trust account for Fred's daughter and brother is fully insured because both beneficiaries are eligible to be covered.
