The Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) will process and pay valid deposit insurance claims of depositors of the closed Growers Rural Bank (Angono, Rizal), Inc during its two-day claims settlement operations (CSO) from April 27-28, 2011.
PDIC advised depositors to come on the appointment date during the CSO at the bank site, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM based on the number indicated on their Claims Status Sheets (CSS) issued when their claims were filed. On April 27, PDIC will service priority numbers, 1-25, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon, and priority numbers, 26-50, from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. On April 28, depositors with priority numbers, 51-75, will be serviced in the morning, and those with priority numbers, 76-100, in the afternoon.
PDIC stressed that depositors who were not able to report on their appointment date may not be accommodated by the PDIC representative during the CSO.
