SUMMARY OF DEPOSITS SURVEY
Filing for June 30, 2012
The Summary of Deposits (SOD) is the annual survey of branch office deposits as of June 30 for all FDIC-insured institutions, including insured branches of foreign banks. Institutions with branch offices are required to submit this survey to the FDIC by July 31, 2012. Institutions with only a main office are exempt; however, they will be included in the survey results based on the total deposits reported on their June Call Report. Publication of the survey data is dependent on timely and accurate filing by respondent institutions; therefore, no filing extensions will be granted.
2012 SOD Timeline
Prior to filing the June 30, 2012, SOD – Conduct Branch Review:Institutions should review branch structural information on the FDIC’s Institution Directory Web site at http://www2.fdic.gov/idasp/index.asp. Institutions may submit corrections with the SOD survey if not submitted previously.

Institutions using vendor software should refer to guidance provided by their software vendor on how to submit changes with the uploaded SOD survey. If your bank has had last-minute structural changes, check with your software vendor about the features that will allow your list to be synchronized with the most up-to-date location information in FDICconnect.

Electronic Filing Options
Institutions must be registered users of FDICconnect and must assign SOD transaction privileges to the person responsible for submitting the SOD. New FDICconnect users must first register with FDICconnect. Refer to the attached FDICconnect and Summary of Deposits Registration Instructions for additional information.
Institutions have two options for filing electronically:
Using Vendor Software to Prepare a File for Upload to the FDIC– Institutions that use vendor software to prepare the SOD survey will be able to upload their completed survey information directly to the FDIC through FDICconnect.
The following vendors have developed software to assist with the SOD filing. Institutions should contact these vendors directly for further information about their products and services:
DBI Financial Systems, Inc.
FIS - Regulatory Solutions
Jack Henry and Associates, Inc.
(512) 795-1288 ext. 456513
Fed Reporter, Inc.
Using the FDIC’s Interactive SOD Survey Option– The FDIC’s interactive SOD survey option is designed for institutions with a small number of branch offices. This option permits an institution to print worksheets, submit revised branch structure information with the survey, and edit SOD data in preparation for submission. Institutions may access the SOD survey site from the FDICconnect Web site at https://www2.fdicconnect.gov/.
Data Accuracy and Validation
Institutions must ensure that all information submitted for the SOD survey is accurate. The FDIC recommends that institutions submit their June 30 Call Report before filing the SOD survey to enable comparisons of deposit totals between the two reports.
Institutions should review the service type codes and the physical address, including the street address, city, state, zip code, and county, for all office locations to ensure consistency with United States Postal Service standards. Physical addresses and zip codes may be verified at http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/ . Institutions should not use post office boxes, mailing addresses other than the actual physical address, street names without actual numbers, intersections, or any other general locations when filing their branch office location information.
Before completing the SOD survey, institutions should review their current branch information on the FDIC’s Institution Directory (ID) Web site at http://www2.fdic.gov/idasp/index.asp (or go to www.fdic.gov → Industry Analysis → Bank Data & Statistics → Institution Directory).
From the ID home page, click on “Find Offices,” enter the bank’s certificate number or institution name, then click on “Find.” The list of branch offices will be presented in state and county order. If an institution’s branch office information is incorrect or incomplete, the institution should notify the FDIC with the correct branch structure information.
Before June 15, 2012, institutions may e-mail corrections to the FDIC’s Data Collection and Analysis Section at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you choose this method, then you must wait until the structure changes are reflected in the interactive filing option or request that your vendor software be synchronized with the most up-to-date information available in FDICconnect before filing your SOD survey.
Beginning June 15, 2012, corrections to structure data should be entered using the FDIC’s interactive SOD survey site or vendor software and submitted with the completed SOD survey. If an institution corrects branch office information because of a merger or branch purchase and assumption, the name, city, and state of the other institution involved in the transaction and the effective date must be included in the e-mail notification or within the “comments” section of the survey.
Once the initial 2012 survey information has been submitted, institutions can amend 2012 deposit totals by accessing the SOD transaction within FDICconnect until September 30, 2013. Institutions that have previously filed using FDICconnect will also be able to amend 2011 deposit totals until September 30, 2012, after which no further changes to 2011 data will be permitted through this process. To submit amended data, institution users must be assigned SOD transaction privileges within FDICconnect.
