The FDIC, as Receiver, is successor to the failed institution and has statutory duty to pursue each viable claim of the institution against those who may have caused losses or those who insured the institution against losses. Restitution orders are awarded by the courts as part of the sentencing of defendants, to repay financial institutions for criminal acts that caused losses to the financial institutions. The FDIC works with the U.S. Department of Justice to collect amounts due from federal criminal restitution orders, with state probation offices or in its own capacity to collect on state criminal restitution orders.
