The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has unveiled a new Internet service allowing the public easy access to a listing of banks' pending applications that are subject to public comment.
The public has the right to comment on applications the FDIC receives from banks to establish a domestic branch, relocate a domestic branch or main office, relocate an insured branch of a foreign bank, engage in a merger or other business combination, or request deposit insurance.
With the new Internet service, users can now quickly obtain a list of applications pending with open public comment periods. Lists can be obtained for a specific region or state.
The Web site is updated daily with new applications as they are received. Users are directed to the appropriate FDIC regional office to send their comments.
