CDARS (Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service)…A safe, convenient solution for large-deposit investors.

Until now, there were only three ways an investor could enjoy full FDIC insurance on deposits larger than 250,000: open and maintain accounts with multiple banks, invest with one bank by transferring ownership and registering accounts in the names of family members or corporate affiliates, or work through a broker-dealer.

Through CDARS, we can now place large deposits into smaller-denomination CDs at multiple institutions. This service can offer you significant benefits:

  • The safety of FDIC insurance for large deposits. Because funds are placed in FDIC-insured CDs that are issued by other financial institution Network members, your total deposits over $250,000 can be eligible for full FDIC coverage. Now you can make bank CD investments up to $1 million or more!
  • CD interest. Rates may compare favorably with those of other high-quality, fixed-income investments.
  • Interest-payment flexibility. You may choose to have interest paid monthly or at maturity.
  • Management convenience. You can manage all of your CD investments through a single relationship.
  • The security of working with a trusted, local source. Your transaction is managed by the people you know and trust here at Ledyard National Bank.



*Usage at a non-Ledyard ATM will incur a $1.00 ATM debit item charge – except for Ledyard Plan clients – and other institutions may impose an ATM fee.
