IV.  National Deposit Institution (NDI)

To protect the insured depositors, the FDIC created DINB OF McDonough, a new depository institution chartered by the OTS and insured by the FDIC to take over the operations of Enterprise Banking Company. The new institution will remain open until Friday, January 28, 2011, to allow depositors access to their insured funds and time to move accounts to other insured institutions.

The bank will be open for a LIMITED period providing LIMITED services. If you do not transfer your funds by January 28, 2011; the FDIC will close your accounts and mail you a check for the remaining funds.

Principal and interest on insured accounts, through Friday, January 21, 2011, are fully insured by the FDIC, up to the insurance limit of $250,000. You will receive full payment for your insured account. Certain entitlements and different types of accounts can be insured for more than the $250,000 limit. IRA funds are insured separately from other types of accounts, up to a $250,000 limit.

Noninterest-bearing accounts are fully insured regardless of amount. All interest bearing accounts that exceed the $250,000 insurance limit and/or all interest bearing accounts that appear to be related and exceed this limit are reviewed by the FDIC to determine their ownership and insurance coverage. If you think you might have uninsured deposits, you should call the FDIC Call Center to arrange for a telephone interview with a Claims Agent at 1-800-405-8251. The Claim Agent may direct you to download and submit a particular form that will assist in expediting the processing of your claim.
