About Indiana Department of Financial Institutions
The Department of Financial Institutions was created by the Indiana Financial Institutions Act of 1933, which commissioned the Department with the responsibility for supervising commercial banks, trust companies, private banks, savings banks, building and loan associations, credit unions, and finance companies incorporated under the laws of the State of Indiana.
The Department works directly with the institutions it regulates, and through examination and supervisory activities endeavors to assure the public of adequate and proper services from such institutions. It seeks to assure the protection of the interests of depositors, borrowers, shareholders, and consumers.
The Department is a dedicated-funds agency whose revenue is derived solely from supervision, examination, and license fees that are assessed to those institutions that are under its regulation.
