Keep your cash balances safe with a simple, secure solution.

Thousands of banks across the United States offer the ICS and CDARS services from IntraFi to help valued customers balance their needs for safety, returns, and liquidity.

How it can work for you.

When you have deposits at a single bank in a single ownership capacity, then you have access up to $250,000 in FDIC insurance at that bank. By using services from IntraFi you can access multi-million-dollar FDIC protection through a single bank relationship.

Financial institutions that offer IntraFi's services are members of IntraFi's network. When you submit funds for placement through your bank using ICS or CDARS, that deposit is divided into amounts under the standard FDIC insurance maximum of $250,000 and placed in deposit accounts at other network banks. You can choose to have funds placed in demand deposit accounts (using the demand option), money market deposit accounts (using the savings option), or CDs.  With your funds placed in amounts below $250,000, you can rest assured that both principal and interest are eligible for FDIC insurance.

By working directly with just one network bank of your choosing, you can access FDIC coverage from many. And, you can enjoy the convenience of transparent, detailed reporting and the ease of receiving periodic statements from your bank.

I have found participation in CDARS to be simple and a time saver. We earn very competitive interest rates on our investments while freeing up staff time. We were in CDARS during our last audit and passed with flying colors!

[My boss] has an ‘on top of it’ philosophy. CDARS gives us a single statement, and we know we’re protected and where the money has been transferred to. The service was made for someone like him.

All the work is done on the institution’s part and not ours [with IntraFi's services]. One less thing I have to do. It’s all under one roof but not under one roof. [My bank rep] was able to bring everything under one bank. So wonderful.
