Isaac Expects Increase in Deposit Insurance Premiums

Article excerpt

William Isaac, chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., recently told a Congressional committee that he expects a significant increase in the deposit insurance premiums charged to insured banks as a result of a recent Penn Square Bank case decision.

The beneficiary in the "Philadelphia Gear" case had sued the FDIC over a Penn Square Bank letter of credit, claiming the letter of credit was an insured deposit, officials said.

The FDIC, in its general insurance publications issued at the time the bank was closed, had indicated that letters of credit were among insured deposits. The U.S. District Court therefore upheld the beneficiary's claim to receive deposit insurance on the first $100,000 of its note.

As a result, officials said Isaac and the FDIC intend to increase the insurance deposit fund by a sufficient amount to insure the first $100,000 of any letters of credit issued by insured banks. The FDIC intends to increase the fund by increasing the deposit premiums paid by insured banks. . .

Local cash letter fees have been reduced from $1 to 75 cents. Availability for local city non-machinable deposits received by published deadlines have been changed from next day to immediate. Availability for local country non-machinable deposits have been changed from two days to next day.

Officials pinned the changes on projections that revenues will exceed costs for check collection services during 1985. This was primarily attributed to lower float costs than were originally anticipated due to relatively mild winter weather and declining interest rates. . .
