Marino on Money: July 15

This week I am talking about FDIC insurance. Last year, the limit was increased from $100k to $250k. This increase was meant to be temporary. By law, it will return to $100k on January 1st, 2010. But there are a couple of exceptions. Retirement accounts, such as an IRA will still be covered up to $250k.

The other exception relates to certain checking accounts in some situations. If you have over $250k in a checking or similar account, call your bank to see if that account qualifies.

What is covered by FDIC insurance? Checking, savings, and CDs are the most common accounts covered. Investments, even if they are purchased through a bank are not covered. FDIC insurance doesn’t cover everything. Don’t assume it applies to all of your business at a bank. You may visit fdic.gov for a specific list of what is covered, or call your institution and ask.

We have seen many banks fail this year. What happens when a bank fails? I will discuss that tomorrow.

Pender County’s plan for boat ramp stalled

Body

Pender County‘s plans to purchase a boat ramp in Hampstead is at a stand still.

The county is hoping to purchase about seven acres along Lewis Road for a boat ramp and parking.

Grant money from state agencies would pay for the ramp, but members of the Pecan Grove Homeowners Association filed a lawsuit against the county, claiming the sale would harm the easement’s value.

County commissioners came up with a Plan B to purchase five acres along Moore’s Landing Road.

A ramp would benefit residents in the area traveling to either Wrightsville Beach or Surf City to put their boat in the water.
