How are my accounts insured through FDIC Insurance? As a result of this merger, all accounts of American State Bank will become accounts of American Bank & Trust as of May 19, 2014. FDIC insurance generally covers depositors' accounts in any bank up to $250,000.00. Therefore, if, as a result of this merger transaction, you will have funds on deposit at American Bank & Trust in excess of $250,000.00, you should pay particular attention to this paragraph. In accordance with Section 8(q) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, in merger transactions where the deposits of one financial institution are transferred to another financial institution, separate insurance on the transferred deposits will continue for six (6) months after the date of transfer, or, in the case of time deposits (certificates), the earliest maturity date after the expiration of the six (6) month period. In other words, if the transfer of your deposits from American State Bank to American Bank & Trust causes your deposits to exceed $250,000.00 at American Bank & Trust, your deposits in excess of $250,000.00 will be insured by the FDIC for six (6) months from the date the merger transaction takes effect, or, in the case of time deposits, the earliest maturity date after the six (6) month period.
