ThWhat can I do in the case of a bank run?e recent events may left you wondering what if my bank fails? What am I going to do in order to protect my money? 

Before we dive in this topic let's understand how a bank run occurs and then I am going to give you some simple steps to follow.

Breath in and let's start...

A bank run occurs when a large number of customers of a bank withdraw their deposits all at once, causing the bank to experience a liquidity crisis and potentially leading to its failure. If you find yourself in the midst of a bank run, here are some steps you can take:

  1. Stay calm: Panic and fear can make a bank run worse. Stay calm and avoid making hasty decisions that you may regret later.

  2. Do not join the run: If you withdraw your money during a bank run, you may contribute to the problem. If you don't need your money immediately, it's best to leave it in the bank.

  3. Contact the bank: Talk to the bank's representatives and ask for information about the bank's financial health. They may be able to provide reassurance and help you understand the situation.

  4. Spread out your deposits: If you have more than the FDIC-insured limit ($250,000 per depositor per bank), you can spread your deposits across multiple banks to reduce the risk of losing all of your money.

  5. Be prepared: Consider keeping some cash on hand in case of emergencies. Also, keep important documents such as bank statements, loan agreements, and account numbers in a safe place.

  6. Monitor the situation: Keep an eye on news reports and other sources of information to stay informed about the bank's situation.

  7. Seek professional advice: If you have a significant amount of money at stake, consider seeking advice from a financial professional or attorney who can help you understand your options and protect your interests.

  8. Move Strategecaly: If you still need to take off your money try to do it online instead of queuing in front of an ATM. You may consider purchasing some hard assets such gold and silver in order to maintain the value of your money.

We live in uncertain times. It's very important before any crisis hits for you to have your plans ready. Filter out the noise. Don't get consumed in the Media Drama. Instead work strategecaly to protect your wealth.
