WASHINGTON – The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) today announced it will temporarily postpone its efforts to modify its signage and advertising requirements. The agency remains committed to modernizing these rules at a future date to better reflect how banks and savings associations are transforming their business models to take deposits via physical branches, digital, and mobile banking channels.

On February 26, 2020, the FDIC published a Request for Information in the Federal Register seeking input regarding potential changes to its sign and advertising rules. Last month, agency extended the comment period to April 20, 2020.

Congress created the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in 1933 to restore public confidence in the nation's banking system. The FDIC insures deposits at the nation's banks and savings associations, 5,177 as of December 31, 2019. It promotes the safety and soundness of these institutions by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to which they are exposed. The FDIC receives no federal tax dollars—insured financial institutions fund its operations.
