August 28, 2009:  Mainstreet Bank, Forest Lake, MN was closed by the Minnesota Department of Commerce. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was named Receiver.

As of June 30, 2009, Mainstreet Bank had total assets of $459 million and total deposits of approximately $434 million.

The FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Central Bank, Stillwater, Minnesota, to assume all of the deposits of Mainstreet Bank.

All deposit accounts, excluding certain brokered deposits, have been transferred to Central Bank and are available immediately. On Saturday, August 29, 2009, the eight former Mainstreet Bank locations will reopen as branches of Central Bank.

Transferred deposits will be separately insured from any accounts you may already have at Central Bank for six months after the failure of Mainstreet Bank. Checks that were drawn on Mainstreet Bank that did not clear before the institution closed will be honored as long as there are sufficient funds in the account. Automatic direct deposits and automatic withdrawals will be transferred automatically to your new bank.

All interest accrued through Friday, August 28, 2009, will be paid at your same rate; however Central Bank will be reviewing rates.

Central Bank will pay the FDIC a premium of 0.10 percent to assume all of the deposits of Mainstreet Bank. In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the failed bank, Central Bank agreed to purchase essentially all of the assets. The FDIC and Central Bank entered into a loss-share transaction on approximately $268 million of Mainstreet Bank's assets.

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) will be $95 million.

Consumer Alert

Unclaimed FDIC Insured Deposits

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

Be advised that not every depositor with funds in a failed bank will receive notification from the FDIC, and there are time limits on claims of FDIC-insured bank accounts, CDs and safe deposit boxes.

Beneficial owners of fiduciary accounts, including Uniform Transfers To Minors accounts, escrow accounts, Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTA), and deposit accounts obtained through a broker (Brokered Accounts) will not be contacted by the FDIC.

This is because these accounts are on the failed bank's records in the name of the fiduciary, not the individual owner. The FDIC does not have access to ownership information, and therefore will not contact individual depositors. It is the responsibility of the broker or other fiduciary to initiate a claim.

In addition, accounts transferred to successor institutions may have lower interest rates and can lose insurance coverage, after a period of time. If an individual already has accounts at a successor institution, perhaps unknowingly in the case of brokered deposits, the insurance limit may be exceeded and funds could be lost in a subsequent receivership.

Finally, in the worst case scenario, by law accounts which go unclaimed for an extended period may be time barred, and safe deposit boxes can be drilled and the contents sold at auction.

It is important to understand you may have an account at a failed institution and not know it, either because you were a depositor at a bank acquired by an institution that subsequently failed, or if you or a deceased family member are the beneficial owner of a brokered fiduciary account.
