What is CDARS®?

CDARS® is the Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service®. And it’s the easiest, most convenient way to enjoy full FDIC insurance on deposit amounts larger than $250,000.

  • Peace of Mind
    To ensure maximum FDIC insurance coverage, customers will often employ strategies such as variations on bank account titles and splitting their funds among multiple banks; with CDARS® at Flushing Bank, the customer’s life is made much simpler. We do all the work to deliver as much as $50 million in FDIC insurance.
  • One Bank
    With a minimum initial deposit of $10,000, Flushing Bank handles everything. Your large deposit is broken into smaller amounts and placed with other banks that are members of a special network.1 Then those member banks issue CDs in amounts under $250,000, so that your entire savings/investment is eligible for FDIC insurance.
  • One Rate
    With CDARS®, you earn one rate on your entire investment.
  • One Statement
    You receive one statement listing all of your CDs, along with the issuing banks, maturity dates, interest earned, and other details.
