SIF Deposit Insurance

A large balance in a MutualOne Bank Online Savings is protected through the Bank’s Share Insurance Fund (SIF) membership. The SIF is a private, industry-sponsored insurance fund that insures all deposits above Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) limits at Massachusetts-chartered co-operative banks.

As stated on MutualOne Bank’s Personal Services Savings & Retirement page,

Each depositor is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to at least $250,000. All deposits over and above this amount are covered by the Share Insurance Fund (SIF), established by the legislature in 1934 to protect deposits in Massachusetts-chartered co-operative banks. There are no maximum account limitations or amount limitations.
