Last week, President Obama signed a law that includes provisions that extend the $250,000 FDIC & NCUA deposit insurance limit to December 31, 2013.

Last year, FDIC and MCUA deposit insurance was temporarily increased from $100,000 to $250,000 until the end of 2008.  The Helping Families Save Their Homes Act of 2009 (S. 896), signed by President Obama last week, includes a provision that extends the FDIC and NCUA deposit insurance limit off $250,000 until December 31, 2013.

The bulk of the bill deals with mortgages and foreclosures, so the extention was not widely covered in the media.
