It will be business as usual for most of the bank's customers because they are covered by FDIC insurance. But 59 of Alpha's bank accounts whose assets total $3.1 million exceed the federal limit of $250,000.
It's the 16th FDIC-insured bank closure this year in the U.S. and the most recent in Georgia since August.
The FDIC said the two Alpha locations will reopen Monday as branches of Stearns Bank.
The disposition of deposits exceeding the $250,000 limit was not immediately determined.
Customers with accounts exceeding the FDIC limit can call (800) 591-2912 to set up an appointment to discuss their deposits.
The FDIC said Alpha Bank & Trust also had about $16.8 million in brokered deposits that are not part of the transaction. The FDIC will pay the brokers directly for the amount of their insured funds.
