FDIC Merger Coverage
The Bank of Hampton Roads and Xenith Bank merged into a single banking entity on July 29, 2016, under the parent company, Xenith Bank. Your FDIC insurance coverage will be combined for all accounts you have in the Bank of Hampton Roads and Xenith Bank as of January 29, 2017.
You have a six-month grace period to restructure accounts if necessary. Under FDIC rules, for at least six months after the merger your “transferred” deposits will be separately insured from any accounts you may already have had at the assuming bank.
Basic Insurance Amount Is $250,000
The basic insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor per insured bank. If you and your family have $250,000 or less in all of your deposit accounts at the same insured bank, you do not need to worry about your insurance coverage -- your deposits are fully insured.
Coverage Over $250,000
The FDIC provides separate insurance coverage for deposit accounts held in different categories of ownership. You may qualify for more than $250,000 in coverage in the combination of our two banks if you own deposit accounts in different ownership categories, such as Individual Accounts, Joint Accounts, Certain Retirement Accounts, and Revocable Trust Accounts.
