ICS®, the IntraFi Cash Service

ICS is offered through IntraFi®, allowing clients to access millions of dollars in FDIC insurance coverage for funds placed into demand deposit accounts at Destination Institutions that participate in the IntraFi network. Upon enrolling into ICS, business clients continue to retain their Bank relationship with their Private Client Group (“PCG”) as a single point of contact to meet their financial needs.1

Transparency

Check your ICS balance, upcoming allocations and track other important information through a specifically designed Depositor Control Panel.

How it works

We, like other institutions that offer ICS, are members of the IntraFi network. When we place your deposit through ICS, that deposit is divided into amounts under the standard FDIC insurance maximum of $250,000. The amounts are then placed into deposit accounts at multiple FDIC-insured banks. As a result, you can access FDIC coverage from many institutions while working directly just with us.

  • ICS offers FDIC insurance coverage by automatically breaking up balances into insurable amounts and allocating each increment across participating IntraFi member banks.
  • Your funds may be swept each business day based on an established target balance amount in your linked account.

CDARS is brought to you by IntraFi, the largest provider of FDIC-insured deposit services, combining the institutional strength of Wall Street with the community presence of Main Street. With IntraFi's services, you can access millions of dollars in FDIC insurance coverage.1

1Deposit placement through ICS or CDARs is subject to the terms, conditions, and disclosures in applicable agreements, including but not limited to the ICS Deposit Placement Agreement and/or CDARS Deposit Placement Agreement and applicable Bank agreements and disclosures. Capitalized Terms not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the ICS Deposit Placement Agreement and/or CDARS Deposit Placement Agreement, as applicable. Deposits held at the Bank may exceed the FDIC standard maximum deposit insurance amount prior to settlement of deposits swept to Destination Institutions and/or after settlement of withdrawal of deposits swept from Destination Institutions. The depositor must make any necessary arrangements to protect such balances consistent with applicable law and must determine whether placement through ICS satisfies any restrictions on its deposits. A list identifying Destination Institutions participating in the IntraFi network appears at https://www.intrafi.com/network-banks. Deposits swept to Destination Institutions are aggregated with any deposits in the same ownership category held by depositor for purposes of FDIC insurance coverage eligibility. As such, the depositor may exclude banks from eligibility to receive its funds. IntraFi, ICS and IntraFi Cash Service are registered service marks of IntraFi LLC.

2When a Program Withdrawal is initiated for funds placed through ICS or CDARs, the bank will advance funds to you in anticipation of settlement of the Program Withdrawal.
