Sound - Solid Banks: does it really matter?

behaviorkeltonDecember 1, 2008

I have been attempting to look at the ratings of the various banks in my area for soundness.

The idea is to have my savings located in a bank that is unlikely to go "under".

Given that most accounts are FDIC insured, does it really matter if my bank is given a full "5 Star" rating?

Our bank Downey Savings out of California just went uder last week. Another bank took over and nothing has changed for us. Same direct deposits and bill pay etc. I don't think it matters as long as it's FDIC.

If you'd added a "d" instead of the "n" ...

... maybe it could have given some nourishing milk.
