2009 list of failed banks

This list shows the U.S. banks that failed in 2009.

Most of the banks are acquired, and the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund, or DIF, which backs up the FDIC's promise to reimburse customers, is listed in the right column.

For more about how the FDIC is handling bank failures, "FDIC deals with mounting bank failures," and FDIC spokesman David Barr's interview with Bankrate.

To learn more about the FDIC's safety net, read our Special section.

Check out the list of banks that failed in 2010.
