Deposit Insurance Fund
Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF)
USA
A fund that is maintained by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), funded primarily though the insurance premiums charged to insured depository institutions. The DIF allows the FDIC to expedite payment and make up for any shortfalls from a failed depository institution's assets when it is satisfying the claims of insured depositors during the receivership process.
