I.  FDIC General Counsel's Statement on NextBank - February 14, 2002

The FDIC, as receiver for NextBank, National Association (N.A.), has advised the Bank of New York, as Trustee for the NextCard Credit Card Master Trust, that an automatic event, default, acceleration or early amortization based solely on insolvency or appointment of the FDIC as receiver is not enforceable against the FDIC. The FDIC has not indicated any question or doubt to the Trustee or otherwise regarding the validity or effect of any other trigger events for an early amortization of any NextBank Credit Card Trust obligations, including any other such trigger events based on collateral performance.

The FDIC reconfirms, under established FDIC policy as codified by express rule at 12 CFR 360.6, that it will not disaffirm or repudiate the completed transfer of financial assets by NextBank, N.A. in securitizations in accord with that FDIC rule.

IV.  Time Deposits

All deposit account(s) at NextBank have been closed as of February 7, 2002.

Because the FDIC was unable to arrange a transfer of the deposits of NextBank to another financial institution, a check for the insured portion of your account(s) will be mailed to you at the last address shown on the books and records of the failed institution. A final statement will be sent to you with the check, along with a letter explaining the payment process.

NOTE: These accounts do not include deposits securing loans or the deposits of certain customers with liabilities to the institution.

You will be paid interest on your account(s) only through the date the institution was closed. Principal and interest on insured accounts, through February 7, 2002, are fully insured by the FDIC, up to the insurance limit of $100,000. If you have an/any account(s) over the insured amount, you will need to speak with an FDIC Claims Agent to review the status of your funds. Certain entitlements and different types of accounts may be insured for more than the $100,000 limit.

If you have funds in an account known as payable on death (POD) account, revocable trust or in trust for (ITF) account, one of the forms listed below is required:

Declaration for Trust- PDF

All accounts that exceed the $100,000 insurance limit, and/or all accounts that appear to be related and exceed this limit, are reviewed by the FDIC to determine their ownership and insurance coverage. If it appears that you have potentially uninsured funds, an FDIC Claims Agent will contact you, by either telephone or mail, regarding your account(s). After February 7, 2002, you may reach a Claims Agent by calling 1-877-367-2719.

If it is determined that you do have uninsured funds, the FDIC will generate and mail to you a Receiver Certificate. This certificate entitles you to share proportionately in any funds recovered through the disposal of the assets of NextBank. This means that you may eventually recover some of your uninsured funds.
