FDIC redux: 2 more banks fail

The bank failure express continues to roll along, with two more banks being taken over by federal regulators.

First National Bank of Nevada, based in Reno, and First Heritage Bank of Newport Beach, Calif, became the sixth and seventh banks this year to be shut down.

Both banks were units of First National Bank Holding Co. of Scottsdale, Ariz. They will reopen on Monday as branches of Mutual of Omaha bank.

Fdic_logo The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., or FDIC, covers individual accounts up to $100,000 per depositor per bank. If you have a retirement account in your bank, it's protected up to $250,000, including accrued interest.

Still, it doesn't hurt to double check just what the FDIC does and doesn't protect. You can find that info in this blog post that went up after the IndyMac failure.
