If you do, you're only adding fuel to the flames. That's partly why Washington Mutual failed. People withdrew when they heard WaMu was under troubled waters. This causes a bank run. Something the FDIC is trying to prevent.
well i dunno how it works over there but over here the government personally insures all the money in bank accounts up to the value of 35k , all i was saying is if your bank goes under there is obviously going to be inconvinience as you claim to the government to get your money back which could take a while

i know that you shouldnt run out and withdrar i whitnessed the exact damage it did to northern rock over here in the UK and the damaage it also did to HBOS as people panick withdrew money however i am just saying i don not blame people for wanting their money and i can see why they do it
