What (Swift Code) if Bank has been foreclosed?

Here is a snippet of news about recently closed banks in US:

"US authorities closed six banks on Friday, bringing the total number of foreclosures in 2011 to 34. The largest of the shuttered banks was Superior Bank of Birmingham, Alabama with about $3.0 billion in assets and $2.7 billion in deposits, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation said in a release.
A newly chartered bank subsidiary of Community Bancorp LLC of Houston, Texas, called Superior Bank, NA will assume the failed bank's deposits, the FDIC said.
The bank is the largest to be closed by regulators this year, as measured by total assets. In January, a New Mexico bank with $2.31 billion in assets was closed.
Most of the banks that have failed so far in 2011 have had less than $1 billion in assets."

Let us try to figure out what would be the implications of this news on the bank account holders if they want to send or withdraw money form these banks internationally. From the news above it is evident that your bank fund and thereof other transactions would be overtaken by some larger entity and hence you would be doing all future or subsequent transaction via the swift code for this larger / overtaking entity.

More our learned readers can add to the conversation here. Thanks

Swift and US ABA codes

I have been getting some queries regarding Swift Code and US ABA Codes. I would want to clarify some points here:

SWIFT's BIC Database Plus provides reference data for over 400,000 financial institutions in the world. It also matches on a monthly basis the national banking codes to the latest Bank Identifier Code (BIC) information released by SWIFT as ISO registrar.

SWIFT reached an agreement with Accuity in 2007, the official registrar of American Bankers' Association (ABA) routing numbers. As of 26 October 2007 onward, the ABA codes will be included in BIC Database Plus, which will cover some 60 countries and territories in total. By cross-referencing the ABA codes with the BICs, SWIFT makes it easier for financial institutions to process cross-border payments sent to the United States. SWIFT developed this unique agreement with Accuity as part of its strategy to provide the broadest coverage of national bank identifiers. So if you want to have all information together, you will need to buy swift's BIC database plus than just asking me for all numbers.

Swift Codes for Credit Unions in Unites States (USA)

Many a times I see queries about swift codes for various credit unions in United States. But my findings about this says there are no direct swift codes for any of the credit unions in Unites States. So the question arises... Do US Credit Unions have their own swift codes ?

Answer is YES, they do have swift codes but not assigned to them directly but they are linked to a third party International US banks and hence used for international money routing to a particular Credit Union in United States.

Hope that gives answer to many users looking for a particular Credit Union Swift Code Number.
