Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS)

Looking for a way to keep large deposits safe? Ask us about CDARS®.

It’s a great solution for individuals, businesses, nonprofit organizations and public entities.

With CDARS, you can access FDIC protection on multi-million dollar CD investments through First Virginia Community Bank. There are few guarantees in life — FDIC insurance is one of them. CDARS can be a valuable tool for cash management or longer term investments.

Why CDARS?

With CDARS, you benefit from:

  • Safety — your money can access multi-million dollar FDIC insurance coverage
  • Convenience — you work directly with us and earn one interest rate; you’ll also receive one regular statement and one year-end tax form
  • Community investment — the full value of your money can support lending opportunities in your local community
  • CD-level rates — your money earns CD-level returns which may compare favorably with other investment alternatives, including treasuries, corporate sweep accounts, and money market funds

How does CDARS work?

We are a member of a special network. When you place a large amount with us, we place your funds into CDs issued by other banks in the same network — in increments of less than $250,000 — so that both principal and interest are eligible for complete FDIC protection. As a result, you can receive coverage from many banks while working with just one.

These exchanges, which occur on a dollar-for-dollar basis, can bring the full amount of your original deposit back to our bank. Therefore, we can make the full amount of your deposit available for lending to business in our communities.

What else should I know?

You no longer have to spend time managing multiple bank relationships, administering various interest rates, organizing interest disbursements from various sources, or manually consolidating monthly statements. This reduces your administrative burden, especially during tax and financial reporting seasons. And with CDARS, you can eliminate the need to monitor changing collateral values — another time-saving convenience. And, of course, your confidential account information remains protected.

Ask us about how CDARS can work for you the next time you visit one of our branches, or email us for more information.

  1. Funds may be submitted for placement only after a depositor enters into the CDARS Deposit Placement Agreement with First Virginia Community Bank. The agreement contains important information and conditions regarding the placement of funds by us.
  2. This benefit applies to some, but not all types of CDARS transactions. Let us know if this benefit is important to you, so that we can explain the relevant terms and conditions in more detail.

CDARS is a registered service mark of Promontory Interfinancial Network, LLC
