What is the difference between an
"INACTIVE" account and a "DORMANT" account?
Dormant accounts are customer bank accounts that have had no activity for a consecutive period of 24 months. FDIC requires the bank to obtain a signed form from the customer acknowledging a transaction was performed on the account after becoming dormant. Verifying it is actually the customer performing the transaction.
Inactive accounts are customer bank accounts that have had no activity for a consecutive period of 12 months.
NOTE: Once an account goes into the inactive/dormant status, the customer will not receive their monthly statement.
