Fayette County Bank, Saint Elmo, Illinois, was closed today by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation - Division of Banking, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver. To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with United Fidelity Bank, fsb, Evansville, Indiana, to assume all of the deposits of Fayette County Bank.
The sole office of Fayette County Bank will reopen as a branch of United Fidelity Bank during its normal business hours. Depositors of Fayette County Bank will automatically become depositors of United Fidelity Bank. Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for customers to change their banking relationship to retain their deposit insurance coverage up to applicable limits. Customers of Fayette County Bank should continue to use their existing branch until they receive notice from United Fidelity Bank that it has completed systems changes to allow other United Fidelity Bank branches to process their accounts, as well.
This evening and over the weekend, depositors of Fayette County Bank can access their money by writing checks or using ATM 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 March 31, 2017, Fayette County Bank had approximately $34.4 million in total assets and $34.0 million in total deposits. In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the failed bank, United Fidelity Bank agreed to purchase approximately $28.9 million of the failed bank's assets. The FDIC will retain the remaining assets for later disposition.
Customers with questions about the transaction should call the FDIC toll-free at 1-800-930-5172. The phone number will be operational this evening until 9 p.m., Central Time (CT); on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., CT; on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m., CT; on Monday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., CT; and thereafter from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., CT. Interested parties also can visit the FDIC's website at https://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/fayettecounty.html.
The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) will be $10.0 million. Compared to other alternatives, United Fidelity Bank's acquisition was the least costly resolution for the FDIC's DIF. Fayette County Bank is the sixth FDIC-insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the second in Illinois. The last FDIC-insured institution closed in the state was Seaway Bank and Trust Company, Chicago, on January 27, 2017.

Analysis | The Cybersecurity 202: How the shutdown could make it harder for the government to retain cybersecurity talent

By Joseph Marks 13-17 minutes THE KEY President Trump delivers an address about border security amid a partial government shutdown on Jan. 8. (Carolyn Kaster/AP) The partial government shutdown that's now in its 18th day is putting key cyber policy priorities on hold and leaving vital operations to a bare bones staff. But the far greater long-term danger may be the blow to government cyber defenders' morale, former officials warn. With the prospect of better pay and greater job security in the private sector, more government cyber operators are likely to decamp to industry, those former officials tell me, and the smartest cybersecurity graduates will look to industry rather than government to hone their skills. That’s especially dangerous, they say, considering the government’s struggle to recruit and retain skilled workers amid a nationwide shortage of cybersecurity talent. About 20 percent of staffers are furloughed at the De

(Andrew Harnik/AP) With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve THE BIG IDEA: If Democrats win the House in two weeks, it’s a safe bet that one of the oversight hearings they schedule for early next year would focus on President Trump’s use of unsecured cellphones. The matter would not likely be pursued with anywhere near the gusto that congressional Republicans investigated Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. Leaders of the minority party have higher priorities . But Democratic lawmakers made clear Thursday morning that they will not ignore a New York Times report that Trump has refused to stop using iPhones in the White House, despite repeated warnings from U.S. intelligence offici
