FDIC Extended Insurance with IntraFi® (ICS® and CDARS®)

Insured Cash Sweep (ICS®) & Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS®)

Our collaboration with IntraFi® allows your funds to be qualified for an elevated level of FDIC insurance coverage exceeding $250,000. IntraFi®, a privately owned corporation, interlinks financial institutions of varied magnitudes to attain mutual triumph. The company assists financial institutions in upholding monetary security, administering cash balances and improving profitability.

Dime actively participates in the IntraFi® network and utilizes its ICS® or CDARS® service to distribute your funds into smaller amounts that are below $250,000. These smaller amounts are then deposited into Demand Deposit or Money Market accounts (utilizing ICS®) or in Certificates of Deposit (through CDARS®) held at various banks where you do not currently have any deposits. By doing so, numerous financial institutions will provide FDIC coverage that will ensure the safety of your entire deposit, which will be managed through your Dime account relationship.
