The FDIC expected that losses to its insurance fund from the Community Bank's failure would range between $200 million and $240 million.
Good News for Depositors
While the pace of failures has certainly picked up lately, the good news is that the FDIC continued its recent streak of avoiding any losses to depositors. In all of the failures following the shutdown of Silver State Bank on Sept. 5, the FDIC has managed to sell all deposits, including those exceeding deposit insurance limits, to other institutions.
