When you place a large deposit with us, we place your funds, through CDARS into certificates of deposit1 issued by other financial institutions in the CDARS Network. Deposit insurance coverage for all deposit accounts is $250,000 per depositor, per insured depository institution for each account ownership category.
CDARS offers you:
