The Deposit Insurance Scheme ("Scheme") was established under the Deposit Insurance Act which came into force on 18 October 2005. The Deposit Insurance Act was repealed and replaced with the Deposit Insurance and Policy Owners’ Protection Schemes Act 2011 (“the Act”) with effect from 1 May 2011. Under the Act, the Scheme is enhanced to extend its coverage.

The Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation (“SDIC”), a separate entity incorporated as a company limited by guarantee under the Companies Act, will administer the Scheme and manage the deposit insurance fund.

Under the Scheme, all insured deposits placed with Maybank (except for deposits under the CPF Investment Scheme and CPF Retirement Sum Scheme) are aggregated and insured up to S$75,000.
