Misconception: Certificates, deposit books and other documentary evidence of deposits held in a member institution are not relevant to making claims in the event of a failure.

Fact: A claim, supported by appropriate proof, must be made to the Deposit Insurance Corporation before payment of deposit insurance can be made. As such, all information including certificates, deposit books bank statements etc. would be required to facilitate a smooth payout process. See Tips for Depositors.
