Careers That Count
The FDIC’s Division of Resolutions and Receiverships (DRR) promotes confidence in the financial system by paying insured depositors quickly when a financial institution fails and effectively managing failed financial institution receiverships. Institutions generally are closed by their chartering authority - the state regulator or the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency – and resolved by DRR. The FDIC has several options for resolving institution failures but the most common is to sell the deposits and loans of the failed institution to another institution. Customers of the failed institution automatically become customers of the assuming institution, and the transition is seamless from the customer's point of view.
