(A) DI Scheme

(i) The DI Scheme in Singapore was established in 2006 with the primary objective of protecting small depositors. The Scheme protects deposits in savings, current and fixed deposit accounts that are held with full banks and finance companies. The Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation (SDIC) is responsible for administering the DI Scheme and providing timely compensation for insured depositors in the event of a DI payout.

(ii) MAS, in consultation with SDIC, conducts periodic reviews of the DI Scheme to ensure adequacy of depositor protection while limiting the cost of the Scheme. The last review was in May 2011, and key enhancements included the increase in DI coverage limit from $20,000 to $50,000.

(B) PPF Scheme

(i) The PPF Scheme protects policy owners for all life insurance policies and certain general insurance policies in the event of failure of a life or general insurer. Such general insurance policies include accident and health policies, insurance that are required by law, and Singapore policies of specified personal lines such as personal motor and personal property (structure and contents) insurance. The Scheme was last reviewed in 2011, following enactment of the Deposit Insurance and Policy Owners’ Protection Schemes Act. The PPF Scheme is also administered by the SDIC.
