Affected Public: Banks or savings associations wishing to become

Applications for deposit insurance must provide sufficient information
to permit the FDIC to consider certain factors which are listed in
section 6 of the FDI Act. These factors include: the financial history
and condition of the depository institution, the adequacy of its
capital structure, its future earnings prospects, the general character
and fitness of its management, the risk it presents to the relevant
insurance fund, the convenience and needs of the community to be
served, and the consistency of its corporate powers. All depository
institutions seeking insurance must follow the same procedures.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.
Affected Public: Insured depository institutions.

for branch closings. This collection covers the requirements for
notice, and for policy adoption.
Request for Comment
Comments are invited on: (a) Whether these two collections of
information are necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's
