JPMorgan Chase
Established
March 2009

Chase Bank finally switched all former Washington Mutual accounts to the Chase computer system on October 25, 2009.

The Chase branches were formerly Washington Mutual branches. In September of 2008, Washington Mutual was deemed insolvent, was seized by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, in the largest bank failure in American history. JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup both placed bids with the FDIC for WaMu's assets, with JPMorgan Chase being the winner of the auction for WaMu's assets. In March 2009, all branches were rebranded to the Chase brand. In 2010 Chase started a new branch on Mission Street.

Washington Mutual came to Santa Cruz County by buying the branches of Great Western Bank in 1997, and Home Savings of America in 1998. Great Western Savings came to Santa Cruz by buying the branches of Northern California Savings in 1982. Northern California Savings came to Santa Cruz by rebranding Palo Alto/Salinas Valley Savings. The Aptos branch of Chase started as an Allstate Savings and Loan.
