What does it mean to be FDIC insured?

Walmart MoneyCards are issued by Green Dot Bank, Member FDIC (Member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation), which means your money is federally insured up to $250,000 and never held by a third-party bank. The FDIC is responsible for insuring financial institutions so depositors don’t lose money in the unlikely event that a bank fails. ​Walmart MoneyCard customers don’t need to purchase deposit insurance; it is automatic for any deposit account opened at an FDIC-insured bank. Deposits are insured up to $250,000 per depositor, per FDIC-insured bank, per ownership category.
