One way the FDIC fulfills its mission to maintain stability and public confidence in the nation's financial system is by carrying out all the tasks triggered by the closure of an FDIC-insured institution. This includes attempting to find a purchaser for the institution and the liquidation of the assets held by the failed banks.

For further questions or information regarding resolution and failed bank activities, please contact the Resolutions Call Center.
