State-Chartered Banks

State-regulated banks intending to open a new branch should contact the Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) in writing. New charters should submit the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) Interagency Charter and Federal Deposit Insurance Application. New officers and directors in certain circumstances may need to submit the Bank Directors Oath and FDIC Interagency Biographical and Financial Report. For links to state banking laws and regulations, visit the Legal Web page.
