I am a deposit broker or have brokered deposits. What do I do?
As an All-Deposit Transfer transaction, the total of
all deposit accounts, excluding the Cede & Co. brokered deposits, have
been assumed by State Bank and Trust Company. The FDIC retained
the Cede & Co.
brokered deposits and will pay those accounts off directly.
Be advised, however, that from and after the date of closing, State Bank and Trust Company will accrue and pay interest on deposit liabilities at a rate it shall determine; accordingly, State Bank and Trust Company shall permit depositors, including brokered depositors, impacted by reduced rates to withdraw their deposits without penalty for early withdrawal.
If you are a customer who has a deposit through a broker at The Buckhead Community Bank, you must contact your broker with any questions.
Direct Deposits - Government Deposits:
What will happen to my direct deposits?
Direct Deposits, including Social Security checks, will continue as normal.
Existing Deposits at State Bank and Trust Company:
I already have other deposit accounts with the new bank. When combined with balances at this bank,
my deposits exceed $250,000. Are all funds insured?
The accounts transferred to State Bank and Trust Company will be separately insured for at least six months after the merger. This grace period gives a depositor the opportunity to restructure the accounts, if necessary.
CDs from the failed bank are separately insured until the earliest maturity date after the end of the six-month grace period.
CDs that mature during the six-month period and are renewed for the same term and in the same dollar amount (either with or without accrued interest) continue to be separately insured until the first maturity date after the six-month period.
If a CD matures during the six-month grace period and is renewed on any other basis, it would be separately insured only until the end of the six-month grace period.
Interest Rates, Early Withdrawal Penalty:
Will I continue to earn interest at the same rate? Will I be charged an early withdrawal penalty?
Interest on all deposits accrued through Friday, December 4, 2009, will be paid at your same rate. State Bank and Trust Company will review rates and notify you if interest rates will change. Your interest rate may be reduced.
You may withdraw funds from any transferred account without an early withdrawal penalty until you enter into a new deposit agreement with your new bank. Entering into a new deposit agreement can be done by either renewing your CD or making a deposit to or a withdrawal from your account.

Why do all deposits, insured or not, pass in some transactions but not in others?
The FDIC is required by law to employ the least-cost resolution measure for each failed financial institution. The most frequent result had been for the FDIC to transfer only the insured deposits in a Purchase and Assumption transaction; however, the temporary increase in the deposit insurance limit has assisted in the transfer of all deposits more often in the past year.
I did some work for the bank and have not been paid. What should I do?
