WASHINGTON - The Federal Reserve Board kicked off a campaign Tuesday to help banks explain that mutual funds and annuities are not covered by federal deposit insurance.

The central bank is offering two products. First, bankers can receive copies of an eight-minute video explaining the differences between certificates of deposit and uninsured products.

Second, bankers can get checklists of all the disclosures they must make before selling annuities and mutual funds.

Both products are available at no charge from the Federal Reserve Bank in Minneapolis.
