How does ICS® work?
Through ICS®, the Insured Cash Sweep® service, many government depositors can access multi-million-dollar FDIC insurance on funds placed into demand deposit accounts (using the ICS demand option), money market deposit accounts (using the ICS savings option), or both.
Work directly with just us―an institution you already know and trust―to access coverage from many, receive just one regular statement, and know that your confidential information remains protected. Your organization has or sets up a transaction account with our bank, signs the agreements, and deposits funds.**
Deposits are sent to deposit accounts at other member institutions in amounts under the standard FDIC insurance maximum of $250,000.
** If you choose both the savings and demand options, you will need to have a separate transaction account for each.

Why you should consider FICA® | For Banks
Through FICA® | For Banks, large deposits are fully insured by the FDIC, giving you the confidence and security you need with the convenience and service of your bank.
Previously, getting the safety of the FDIC insurance on your large balance account was a complex and time-consuming process that consisted of opening multiple accounts, with multiple banks.
FICA® | For Banks is a liquid, FDIC-insured deposit account for large cash balances. As a FICA® | For Banks account holder, your funds will be placed into a network of well-capitalized, FDIC-insured financial institutions in increments of less than $250,000 so that both the principal and interest receive complete FDIC-protection.
As an account holder, you’ll also enjoy the convenience of a single account at your bank and have peace of mind knowing your large deposits are safe and earning a competitive rate with less time spent by you.
