The Department regulates Georgia state-chartered banks but does not regulate all banks operating in Georgia. Banks that are chartered in other states are typically regulated by that state's banking agency.
Additionally, national banks are chartered and regulated by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ("OCC"). National banks are identified by the indication of "National" or "N.A." in their full legal name. For more information on national banks, please visit www.helpwithmybank.gov (provided by the OCC). In addition, you may find information on national banks on the OCC’s main webpage, www.occ.treas.gov.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) also has federal regulatory authority over banks that have federally insured deposits. For more information on the FDIC, please visit www.fdic.gov. For more information about deposit insurance, please visit “Deposit/Share Insurance.”
For more information on Georgia state-chartered banks or to search for a Georgia state-chartered bank, please visit “Banks.”
The FDIC provides a search function which you can utilize to find a particular bank that has federally insured deposits. This search function can be accessed at https://banks.data.fdic.gov/bankfind-suite/bankfind. This site also provides information on banks, including locations and a link to the bank’s website.
