What is the CDARS® network?

CDARS® is a special network of banks that provides you with access to multi-million-dollar FDIC insurance, by placing your funds into CDs issued by other participating banks in the CDARS® network. 

How does it work?

You make your initial deposit with Cornerstone Bank, and we do the work of placing your money in CDs within the network. 

Your money is placed in CDs in increments of less than the standard FDIC insurance maximum so that both the principal and interest are eligible for FDIC protection. As a result, you can receive coverage from many banks while working directly with your Cornerstone Banker! 

Note: While early withdrawals are available, you will be required to pay a substantial penalty.

Benefits of CDARS

  • Avoid the hassle of opening accounts at different banks

Through ICS, the Insured Cash Sweep® service, you can earn interest on funds placed into demand deposit accounts (using the ICS demand option), money market deposit accounts (using the ICS savings option), or both, and rest assured knowing that your ICS funds are eligible for multi-million-dollar FDIC insurance.

You can also enjoy unlimited program withdrawals (using the ICS demand option) or up to six program withdrawals per month (using the ICS savings option). 

How Does ICS Work?

Our bank places funds for you using the ICS service, your deposit is sent from your Cornerstone Bank transaction account  into deposit accounts at other ICS Network banks in amounts below the standard FDIC insurance maximum ($250,000). This makes your funds eligible for FDIC protection. As a result, you have access to FDIC insurance coverage from many institutions while working directly with your Cornerstone Banker.

What Else Do You Need to Know?

You receive one regular monthly statement from us showing your ICS balances and other key information. You can check your ICS balances and track other important information of interest to you online, 24/7, through a specially designed Depositor Control Panel. Your confidential information remains protected.

ICS can eliminate the ongoing tracking burdens associated with collateralization and the need to footnote uninsured deposits in financial statements if you are accustomed to these practices.

With text fraud alerts, if our system detects suspicious activity on your card, you’ll receive a text message with details about the suspected transaction. All you have to do is respond to the text to confirm the transaction. If you indicate the transaction is fraud, you’ll receive another message with a number to call for follow-up.
