FRED Adds New National Rate Cap Series

These 53 series represent the changes that the FDIC implemented after redefining the “national rate” as follows: the average of rates paid by all insured depository institutions and credit unions for which data are available, with rates weighted by each institution’s share of domestic deposits.

On December 15, 2020, the FDIC Board of Directors approved a final rule making certain revisions to the interest rate restrictions applicable to less-than-well-capitalized institutions (as defined in Section 38 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act), which are effective on April 1, 2021. The interest rate restrictions generally limit a less-than-well-capitalized institution from soliciting deposits by offering rates that significantly exceed rates in its prevailing market.

Users are encouraged to read the previously mentioned documentation, as well as view the release tables.
