Accessibility

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is committed to meeting or exceeding the accessibility requirements of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 794d), as amended, and the Architectural Barriers Act of 1968.

Pursuant to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the FDIC requires equal access to all programs and activities conducted by the FDIC to individuals with disabilities comparable to those who do not have disabilities, as codified in 12 Code of Federal Regulations Part 352, Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability.

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act requires all electronic and information technology purchased, developed, maintained, or used by federal agencies to be readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. The Section 508 standards are the technical requirements and criteria used to measure conformance with this law. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found at www.section508.gov.

The Architectural Barriers Act requires that buildings and facilities that were built, designed, constructed, altered, leased or financed with Federal funds, by or on behalf of the United States, after August 12, 1968, be accessible to individuals with physical disabilities. Additional information on the Architectural Barriers Act can be found at www.access-board.gov/the-board/laws/architectural-barriers-act-aba.

In order to meet the requirements of Section 508, we have published a number of our reports in both the text and pdf format. We have also formatted our web pages to enable visitors to effectively use assistive technologies such as a screen reader.

If you require assistance in accessing any of the information on our web site, please contact our webmaster.
