Customers may obtain the benefits of FDIC insurance eligibility* in a Fidelity® Cash Management Account through the FDIC-Insured Deposit Sweep Program and the Program Banks listed below. Once you open and fund your Fidelity® Cash Management Account, the available Cash Balance will be held on your behalf at one or more of the Program Banks assigned to your account1. Once at a bank, your Cash Balance will be eligible for FDIC insurance coverage up to the applicable limits2.
Fidelity will assign a Program Bank List to your account. The banks on the list will be eligible to receive your Cash Balances. If you open your account online today then your account will be assigned the Program Bank List shown below. After your account is established, you will receive a New Account Profile confirming your account details, including the Program Bank List assigned to your account. If you open your account online, you will receive information about the Program Bank List that will be assigned to your account before you complete the account opening process. After your account is open, you may contact us to change to another Program Bank List if one is available.

On May 16, 2022, Bank of America's participation in the Fidelity FDIC-Insured Deposit Sweep Program will end, and Bank of America will be removed from the Program Bank List assigned to your account.
In connection with this change, if your account has been assigned a Program Bank List that includes Bank of America as the first bank (the Primary Core Bank), on or around April 25, 2022, your account will be assigned an updated Program Bank List. This updated Program Bank List will replace your current Program Bank List reflecting Leader Bank as the Primary Core Bank. This will be the case regardless of whether you previously opted out of Leader Bank.
Between now and May 16, 2022, Bank of America will not be available to accept deposits. As a result, you will not have funds on deposit at Bank of America. Therefore, neither the assignment of a revised Program Bank List on April 25, nor the removal of Bank of America from the Program Bank List on May 16, will affect where your Cash Balances are deposited.
You are not required to take any action at this time, but if you have any questions about the removal of Bank of America, or changes to the assigned Program Bank Lists, please contact a Fidelity Representative at 800-544-3716. If you do not contact Fidelity before the changes noted above take effect, Fidelity will consider you to have acknowledged and agreed to continue to participate in the Program including the changes described above.
Fidelity will manage the movement of money between Fidelity and the Program Banks assigned to your account; this will occur automatically whenever you make deposits, execute transactions or withdraw money from your Fidelity® Cash Management Account. To learn more, please review the Fidelity® Cash Management Account FDIC-Insured Deposit Sweep Program Disclosure Document. You may call a Fidelity Representative at 800-931-9987 if you have any questions regarding the Program Banks.
You are responsible for monitoring the total amount of your assets on deposit with a Program Bank (including amounts in other accounts at that bank held in the same right and legal capacity) in order to determine the extent of FDIC deposit insurance coverage available to you on those deposits, including your Cash Balance held at the Program Bank.
- You may only access your Cash Balance through your Fidelity® Cash Management Account. You cannot access or withdraw the Cash Balance by directly contacting the Program Bank.
- The Cash Balance in the FDIC-Insured Deposit Sweep is swept to an FDIC-Insured interest-bearing account at a Program Bank. The deposit at the Program Bank is not covered by SIPC. The deposit is eligible for FDIC insurance subject to FDIC insurance coverage limits. All assets of the account holder at the depository institution will generally be counted toward the aggregate limit. For more information about FDIC insurance coverage, please visit the FDIC Web site at www.FDIC.gov or call 877-ASK-FDIC. As referenced in the Fidelity® Cash Management Account FDIC-Insured Deposit Sweep Program Disclosures, customers are responsible for monitoring their total assets at a Program Bank to determine the extent of available FDIC insurance. All FDIC insurance coverage is in accordance with FDIC rules.
- This is the current list of Program Banks to which Fidelity may elect to sweep your Cash Balance. In the event that your total assets at a Program Bank (including assets that you hold with the bank outside of the FDIC-Insured Deposit Sweep Program) exceed the FDIC insurance limits, you may contact Fidelity to change to a different Program Bank List if one is available. Fidelity maintains the right to change the Program Bank List that is assigned to your account at any time. If a change is made to the Program Bank List assigned to your account, Fidelity will notify you in writing of that change through your statement or confirmation notice. Although Fidelity cannot guarantee the financial health or stability of the Program Banks, it has made diligent efforts to select banks that are financially sound, have a good business reputation, and are in good standing with the FDIC and other bank regulatory bodies. The parent company of Fidelity has a minority percentage, non-controlling interest in Leader Bank, N.A.
