Certificates of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS)
Knowing your investments and savings are secure are a top priority for you and for us. Through CDARS you may receive up to $50 million in FDIC insurance to ensure your investments are safe with us. Through CDARS, we give you security while also simplifying the process for you because you deal with one bank, one rate and one statement.
Through CDARS we can provide you with easy access to multi-million dollar FDIC protection on investments. So, how does CDARS system work? Our bank is a member of a special network that allows us to match and exchange deposits with other banks who are also members of the network. When you deposit a large dollar amount with us, we place your funds into CDs issued by other banks in the network—in increments of less than $250,000—so that both your principal and interest are eligible for complete FDIC protection. These exchanges, which occur on a dollar-for-dollar basis, bring the full amount of your original deposit back to our bank. As a result, we can make the full amount of your deposit available for community lending purposes and you can access FDIC insurance coverage from many banks while working with just us.
