Feds Close Area Banks

Posted by wlpo on December 5, 2009

An Aurora-based bank with locations in Seneca and Ransom has been closed down by federal regulators.

Benchmark Bank was one of six banks to be closed by the feds yesterday.  130 banks across the country have been closed by federal regulators this year largely because of the recession.

MB Financial Bank of Chicago is taking over the majority of Benchmark’s deposits and assets.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
