Silicon Valley Bank depositors will have access to their money starting Monday: Treasury Secretary
Washington, Mar 13 (PTI) In a step aimed at protecting the US economy by strengthening public confidence in the country’s banking system, the Biden administration announced that depositors of the Silicon Valley Bank will have access to their money from Monday.
After receiving recommendations from the boards of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Federal Reserve, and consulting with the president, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Sunday approved actions enabling the FDIC to complete its resolution of the Silicon Valley Bank, Santa Clara, California, in a manner that fully protects all depositors, an official statement said.
“The depositors will have access to all their money starting Monday, that is, March 13. No losses associated with the resolution of the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) will be borne by the taxpayer,” said a joint statement issued by the Department of the Treasury, Federal Reserve, and FDIC.
