2 Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service Machias Savings Bank is pleased to be a participating member in the Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS). As a member of this service, Machias Savings Bank is able to offer clients a single financial institution in which to place their certificates of deposit that exceed the FDIC insured limit. With CDARS, Machias Savings Bank opens the client’s CD in the desired term, in amounts above of $250,000. Available FDIC coverage is then borrowed from other association banks across the country in order to insure the client’s full CD amount for the entire term of the CD. This system enables clients to maintain CDs at one financial institution instead of spreading them across multiple banks in order to take advantage of FDIC coverage.
