Safety and security of your deposit account is paramount today. Making sure your deposits are covered by the FDIC is something every one and every company should do. By titling accounts properly a typical couple may quickly achieve $1,000,000 in FDIC insurance from our bank. But, what if you have a larger deposit, are seeking FDIC insurance and don’t know what to do?
The MaxSafe Account is designed for those seeking a Certificate of Deposit (CD) or Money Market Account (MMA) with additional FDIC insurance. MaxSafe is an innovative and unmatched investment alternative that provides up to
15 times the FDIC security of a traditional banking deposit. We’ll also simplify your life by providing one summary statement and one 1099 form at tax time.
In today’s volatile marketplace, the added security and convenience of up to $3.75 million in FDIC insurance means peace of mind. How can we offer this unparalleled level of protection? By depositing your funds across a group of 15 affiliated community banks. Fifteen banks equals fifteen times the usual $250,000 level of FDIC maximum protection. However, you must consider the funds you have on deposit at our bank.
It is an automatically renewable, fixed-rate Certificate of Deposit (of a chosen term) with FDIC insurance of up to $3.75 million per titled account. It is available for consumers, businesses and not-for-profits. It is not currently available for IRA’s, however. A minimum deposit of $100,000 is required to open a MaxSafe CD.
It is a Money Market Account (MMA), with the typical limitation of transactions per month like a normal money market account (please ask a personal banker for more details) insurance of up to $3.75 million per titled account. It is available for consumers, businesses and not-for-profits. A minimum deposit of $250,000 is required to open a MaxSafe MMA. A minimum service charge of $75 will be assessed if the balance falls below $250,000.
With 15 separate, but affiliated, community banks in Illinois and Wisconsin, we are able to combine each bank’s individual FDIC protection and offer our customers the benefit of 15 times the normal $250,000 level of FDIC Insurance. All fifteen of these banks are all fully FDIC Insured and “well capitalized” per the FDIC and other government regulatory bodies. A custody account from our affiliate, Wayne Hummer Trust Company, N.A., is opened via a MaxSafe professional, and funds are deposited on your behalf across these 15 banks.
This is absolutely legal and is perfectly in compliance with FDIC rules and regulations. While almost no banks in the Chicago area offer this service as of yet, a number of national brokerage houses offer a similar extra-FDIC insured program.
