What will happen with Deposits of the consumers?

When a bank is closed by the regulatory authority and the FDIC is appointed as the receiver, the insured deposits are protected by the FDIC. The FDIC creates a Deposit Insurance National Bank (DINB) to hold the insured deposits and ensure that customers have continued access to their insured funds. The FDIC transfers all insured deposits to the DINB, and insured depositors have full access to their funds no later than the next business day.

Uninsured depositors may receive a portion of their uninsured funds as an advance dividend from the FDIC within the next week, and the remaining amount of uninsured funds will be covered by a receivership certificate. As the FDIC sells the assets of the failed bank, future dividend payments may be made to uninsured depositors.

The main office and all branches of the failed bank will reopen under the DINB’s management, and banking activities will resume, including online banking and other services. The FDIC as the receiver will retain all the assets of the failed bank for later disposition. Loan customers should continue to make their payments as usual.

Overall, the appointment of the FDIC as receiver of a bank provides protection for insured depositors and ensures that they have continued access to their funds.
