Through the Bank Insured Deposit Program (BIDP), cash deposits will be eligible for up to approximately $4 million in deposit insurance from the FDIC, which greatly exceeds the maximum FDIC- insurable amount outside of the program. FDIC-insured investments are designed to remove the market and credit risks associated with money funds and direct short-term investments. This aggregate amount of FDIC insurance under the BIDP may vary depending on the number of banks participating in the BIDP from time-to-time.
BIDP enables investors to access funds at their discretion.
As FDIC insurance is limited to $250,000 per bank per investor, many investors resort to holding their assets with multiple banks. BIDP provides both security and convenience, facilitating the consolidation of large deposit balances. D.A. Davidson will place up to $246,500 ($493,000 for joint accounts of two or more individuals) (the “Deposit Limit”) of your available cash in each program bank on the Priority Lists.

BIDP Tiered Rates
For eligible accounts participating in the BIDP, interest rates on deposit accounts will be tiered based on aggregate household assets (“Interest Rate Tiers”). This means that investors with higher household asset balances have the ability to earn better interest rates. IRA accounts participating in one of our advisory programs are not eligible to participate in these tiered rates. Please click BIDP Interest Rate Tiers for current rates.
