I'm rather leery of small banks now as I see more downfall for financial, and even though insured, it takes time to recover when they go bust.

In the majority of cases where a bank fails, the account will be moved to another bank with no period of lost access. In the cases where they cannot find a new bank to take over, the typical time for FDIC to process a check is just 48 hours or over a weekend (they like to have banks cease operations on a Friday afternoon and then everything is completed by Monday morning).
