I know that most Banks are FICA insured for $100,000, but have been told that some banks are safer than others and if a bank was to fail, one would have to wait for some time to receive the money back, and while waiting one would not get interest. Is this true. How can one check on the ratings of banks. If it is a joint account is it insured for $200,000.
