As it celebrates 60 years of protecting the depositing public and promoting financial
stability, the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) will resolutely lead the
nationwide observance of the 21st Depositor Protection and Awareness Week (DPAW) from
June 16 to 22, 2023 with the theme “Maniguro, Magbangko, Umasenso”.
As mandated under Presidential Proclamation No. 358 issued in April 2003, the annual
observance of DPAW aims to support the government’s efforts towards sustainable
economic growth and help further strengthen stability in the banking system by promoting
depositor confidence. The 21st DPAW will conclude on June 22, 2023, which is the PDIC’s
milestone 60th anniversary.
The 21st DPAW will highlight the importance of developing the habit of saving money in
banks for all to achieve financial security. More than just ensuring that future needs will
be met, a bank account can also help in reaching financial goals to raise one’s standard of
living and make life more satisfying.
As its industry partners, the PDIC enjoined all banks and other institutions to display the
21st DPAW electronic banner and other materials on their ATM screens, LED monitors,
websites, and social media pages throughout the week-long observation to promote the
“Maniguro, Magbangko, Umasenso” message. DPAW information and social media
materials may be downloaded from the PDIC website at www.PDIC.gov.ph/dpaw.
As the state deposit insurer, the PDIC protects depositors by providing deposit insurance
up to the maximum deposit insurance coverage of P500,000 per depositor, per bank.|
