During the last six years, 21 local banks and savings and loan institutions have been seized by government regulatory agencies. Since 1984 10 of 31 failed S&Ls and savings banks in California have been headquartered in Orange County. Of the 21 institutions seized, only five were liquidated.

Those remaining were either purchased by other, healthier organizations or placed under special management programs. In each case, accounts of up to $100,000 were fully insured by either the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) or the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corp. (FSLIC). The government also tries to make sure the small percentage of funds not insured is recovered for the depositor.

The list below is based on the most recent data available from federal deposit insurance and regulatory agencies.
