Another Friday night in America means another bank goes bust. This week, it’s two banks: Haven Trust of Georgia nd Sanderson State of Texas. BB&T is stepping in for the deposits at Haven Trust. And Pecos is taking the deposits at Sanderson. These banks are small, so this is not earth-shattering news.

Below are the pertinent details and links back to the FDIC website.

Haven Trust Bank, Duluth, Georgia, was closed today by the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was named receiver. To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Branch Banking & Trust (BB&T), Winston-Salem, NC, to assume all of Haven Trust’s deposits, including those that exceeded the insurance limit.

The four branches of Haven Trust will reopen on Monday as branches of BB&T. All the depositors of Haven Trust will automatically become depositors of BB&T. Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for customers to change their existing banking relationship to retain their deposit insurance coverage. Customers of the failed bank should continue to use their existing branches until they receive further information from BB&T.

Over the weekend, depositors of Haven Trust can access all their money by writing checks or using ATMs or debit cards. Checks drawn on the bank will continue to be processed. Loan customers should continue to make their payments as usual.

As of December 8, 2008, Haven Trust had total assets of $572 million and total deposits of $515 million. BB&T agreed to assume all of the deposits for $112,000. In addition to assuming all of the failed bank’s deposits, BB&T will purchase approximately $55 million of the failed bank’s assets. The FDIC will retain the remaining assets for later disposition.
