In this study, we model and analyze individual’s withdrawal behavior with risk tolerance. Consequently,
it is found the followings: 1) effects of psychological factors such as degree of trust in information
sources and degree of risk aversion are not uniformly against individual’s deposit-withdrawal behavior,
2) the probability that they carelessly withdraw their deposits tends to be lower if individuals correctly
understand Japanese deposit insurance scheme, and 3) annual income affects individual's deposit-
withdrawal behavior, but total amount of his/her deposit and the number of accounting do not affect it.
From these findings, we propose that the government and financial institutes implement the measure
which promotes to let understand Japanese deposit insurance scheme to depositors.
