  • Brokered CDs sold in the secondary market are subject to market conditions and if sold prior to maturity may return less than your original investment.

Included in this coverage is any other amount you may have on deposit with the bank or institution that issued the CD. Please make sure you know the extent of your FDIC coverage and that you monitor your entire deposit with the issuer to ensure it does not exceed the coverage limit.

  • When you buy a Schwab-affiliated bank CD, any other funds you hold at the same bank in the same ownership capacity (for example, through the Schwab Bank Sweep feature, the TDA IDA program, or in a Schwab High Yield Checking or Savings Account) may be aggregated for purposes of FDIC coverage limits. Clients can see their Schwab Bank Sweep breakdown, including the current balances at each bank, on the schwab.com Balances page or on their monthly/quarterly statements. More information is available by reviewing the Cash Features Disclosure Statement.

Also included are self-directed Keogh accounts, "457 Plan" accounts for state government employees, and employer-sponsored "defined contribution plan" accounts that are self-directed, which are primarily 401(k) accounts. In general, self-directed means the consumer chooses how and where the money is deposited.
