FDIC TEMPORARY LIQUIDITY GUARANTEE PROGRAM
The FDICs TLGP is designed to strengthen confidence and encourage liquidity in the banking system by:
In December 2008, PNC Funding Corp issued at the holding company level fixed and floating rate senior notes totaling $2.9 billion under the FDICs TLGP-Debt Guarantee Program as more fully described within the Liquidity Risk Management section of this Item 7. Each of these series of senior notes is guaranteed by the FDIC and is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States through June 30, 2012.
As of October 14, 2008, PNC Bank, N.A. and National City Bank have been participating in the TLGP-Transaction Account Guarantee Program. Under this program, through December 31, 2009, all non-interest bearing transaction accounts are fully guaranteed by the FDIC for the entire amount in the account. Coverage under this program is in addition to, and separate from, the coverage available under the FDICs general deposit insurance rules.
