CDARS®

CDARS® ***, the Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service®, is the convenient way to access FDIC insurance on CD deposits that exceed the standard FDIC insurance maximum of $250,000. More CDARS® insight from our team:

  • One bank: Everything is handled through Newtown Savings Bank. Your deposits are broken into smaller amounts. FDIC-insured banks that are members of the CDARS® Network issue CDs in amounts under the standard FDIC insurance maximum so that your investment is eligible for FDIC insurance. 
  • One rate: You earn one rate per maturity on each investment. Although you may be issued multiple CDs for a single maturity, they will all earn the same rate. 
  • One statement: You will receive one regular account statement listing all of your CDs – along with issuing banks, maturity dates, interest earned and other details. 


*Sweep Investment Service accounts are not insured by the FDIC; are not deposits or other obligations of the institution and are not guaranteed by the institution; and are subject to investment risks, including possible loss of the principal invested.
