As noted below regarding total problem banks, bank failures in 2011 are expected to continue at a high rate and be 100+. The chart below is the data from 2004 through 2010. Bank failures for 2011 are estimated by extrapolating 2011 actual closures based on a 52-week year. Actual 2011 bank failures will be included on the chart later this year as the closures accumulate to a higher level.

FDIC Deposit Insurance Fund Cost of Failed Banks Failed banks and the seizure by the FDIC cost money. The seized banks' deposits are usually assumed by another bank as are most of the assets. However, not all assets of the failed bank have value (usually the worst performing loans, non-performing loans, repossessions, and foreclosures). The FDIC may enter into a loss-share agreement with another bank to manage the questionable assets or take direct possession of the assets and attempt to dispose of them. Upon seizure of a bank, the FDIC estimates the loss to the Deposit Insurance Fund. The Deposit Insurance Fund is normally funded by the banking community through FDIC assessments to each FDIC insured bank based on insured deposits, plus special assessments. Below is a chart of the estimates by the FDIC of costs (losses) incurred upon seizure of banks in 2011. The chart is by week for 2011 and shows the accumulated losses as the year goes along.
FDIC Problem Banks by Quarter The FDIC problem bank list rose from 884 at 12-31-10 to 888 at 3-31-11. The total problem banks remain elevated. The total assets of the problem banks from the year-ends 2004 through 2010 were $28B, $7B, $8B, $22B, $159B, $403B, $390B, respectively. The total assets of the current (3/31/2011) 888 problem banks is $397B, or an average of $447 million in total assets per problem bank. The FDIC reports the total problem banks on a quarterly basis.
