FDIC-Insured

How it works

The FDIC-Insured investment option allocates money to the FDIC-insured accounts held in trust by:

  • Sallie Mae Bank—90 percent.
  • U.S. Bank—10 percent.

This option aims to provide interest income while preserving capital.

Account contributions and earnings are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) up to $250,000 at each bank.

The amount of FDIC insurance available is based on the proportional value of your client’s investment in the FDIC-insured accounts at each bank, plus the value of any other personal accounts your client may hold at each bank.
