All depositors are fully protected and there will be no cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund. "For all depositors and other customers of Washington Mutual Bank, this is simply a combination of two banks," said FDIC Chairman Sheila C. Bair. "For bank customers, it will be a seamless transition. There will be no interruption in services and bank customers should expect business as usual come Friday morning." JPMorgan Chase acquired the assets, assumed the qualified financial contracts and made a payment of $1.9 billion. Claims by equity, subordinated and senior debt holders were not acquired.

Thursday evening, Washington Mutual was closed by the Office of Thrift Supervision and the FDIC named receiver.
