FAQs: Your Guide to CDARS

Posted on 1/8/2021 by in CDARS

Are you looking for a safer way to save? Protect your nest egg with our Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service®, known as CDARS®. Administered by Promontory Interfinancial Network, a trusted partner of more than 3,000 financial institutions in the U.S., the CDARS service allows you to maintain a single relationship with one bank while receiving FDIC deposit insurance on up to $50 million, far more than the current limit of $250,000 per bank. So, you can continue to deal with CBHOU, the community bank that focuses on you, while receiving the same benefit as would come from holding multiple savings accounts at different financial institutions. As an added bonus, member banks in the CDARS Network swap deposit amounts. This means that, although your savings is divided among different banks, the total amount you deposit in CDARS will go to your primary bank for use with local lending.
