Branch offices re-opened on Tuesday, September 2nd, at the five former Integrity Bank main office and branch locations.

All depositors of Integrity Bank, including those with deposits in excess of the FDIC's insurance limits, will automatically become depositors of Regions Bank for the full amount of their deposits.

In addition to the premium paid on deposits, Regions agreed to purchase approximately $34.4 million of Integrity Bank's assets, consisting of cash and cash equivalents. The FDIC retained the remaining assets for later disposition.

The FDIC estimates that the cost to its Deposit Insurance Fund will be between $250 million and $350 million. Expected losses to uninsured depositors were fully covered by the premium paid for the failed bank's franchise.

Consumer Alert

Unclaimed FDIC Insured Deposits

Note: There are time limits on claims of FDIC-insured bank accounts, CDs and safe deposit boxes ...

If an insured depositor fails to make a claim an insured or transferred deposit within 18 months after the FDIC initiates the payment of insured deposits, the transferee institution must refund the deposit to the FDIC, and all rights of the depositor against the transferee institution are barred.

The FDIC then remits the insured deposit to the custody of the unclaimed property administrator in the account owner's home state, unless that state declines to accept custody. Upon delivery, the FDIC is deemed to have made payment to the depositor, and all rights of the depositor against the FDIC are barred.

Most states allow claims in perpetuity, but there's a reversion clause. If a depositor does not claim the deposit delivered to the custody of the State within 10 years of the date of delivery, the deposit must then immediately be refunded to FDIC, and all rights of the depositor against the state are barred.

It's important to note that If a state declines to accept custody of the deposit - which they sometimes do - the depositor must claim the funds from the FDIC before the receivership is terminated, or all rights of the depositor with respect to the deposit are barred. Dividends for credits arising from uninsured portions of a deposit may, however, be claimed after the receivership is terminated if a dividend check was returned by the post office for a bad address.

Be aware that due to the number of mergers and acquisitions in the banking industry over the years, it is possible you or a deceased family member might well have an account at a failed bank and not know it. Additionally, unclaimed safe deposit boxes at closed branches may be drilled and the contents sold at auction just weeks after closing, so prompt action is advised.  For assistance go to: Unclaimed Account Search
