Get Answers to Your Banking Questions

My bank went out of business, but I need a release of my mortgage from them. What do I do?

The entity that took over your mortgage should have notified you. If you can't find out which company took over, call the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's (FDIC) lien release number at (888) 206-4662 (toll free) or visit the Closed Banks and Asset Sales section on the FDIC's "Contact Us" page.
