I am transitioning to a new bank due to an FDIC takeover. There is just nothing out there to answer some of this.
The new bank is actually assuming all of the deposits and some of the assets of the failed bank. Shortly after, the new bank began to close branches. In the public file, do I list all the branches as purchased (opened) as of the takeover date and then show the closings for the ones that are closed? The old bank signs were removed immediately and the new bank's signs were posted so they were operating as branches of the new bank.
Also, the new bank had a regular merger a few months ago and they do not show any of those branches in their public file which, I know, is supposed to be current as of 4/1/11. In that case, the purchase was final as of 1/1/11 but they operated the branches under the former bank's name until some time in May. Which date is used?
I just don't think there are commentaries or any written clarification on any of this. If there is, I can't find it.
