When FDIC insured banks merge, deposits from the assumed bank (Kingsley State Bank, in this case) are separately insured from deposits at the assuming bank (Midstates Bank) for at least six (6) months after the merger. This gives depositors from the merged bank the opportunity to restructure his or her accounts if necessary. Simply reach out to your banker to discuss FDIC insurance any time.
