Cash sweep program
Helping ensure your money is accessible
Through Wells Fargo Advisors Cash Sweep program, clients may earn income on uninvested cash balances in their account. The Cash Sweep program consists of two distinct options:
- Wells Fargo Advisors Bank Deposit Sweep
- Money Market Fund Sweep
Eligibility is based on the type of investment account and nature of account ownership.
How our Bank Deposit Sweep Program works
With the Wells Fargo Advisors Bank Deposit Sweep, you can have up to $1 million in FDIC insurance for deposits in your Wells Fargo Advisors account.
Additional information is contained in the Wells Fargo Advisors Sweep Features Eligibility (PDF) and the Cash Sweep Program Disclosure Statement (PDF).
FDIC insurance coverage for the Bank Deposit Program
Balances in the Wells Fargo Advisors Bank Deposit Sweep are insured up to $250,000 (or other applicable amount) per Affiliated Bank by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for each category of legal ownership for a total of $1 million in FDIC insurance coverage.
The following banks are affiliates of Wells Fargo Clearing Services, LLC (“WFCS”) and will be operating as affiliated program banks (“Affiliated Banks”) pursuant to the WFA Bank Deposit Sweep Program:
- Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
- Wells Fargo Bank South Central, N.A.
- Wells Fargo Bank Northwest, N.A.
- Wells Fargo Financial National Bank
Uninvested cash balances will be swept to these banks, each of which is eligible for federal deposit insurance up to $250,000. Balances in the Bank Deposit Sweep in excess of $1 million will be deposited at Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and may not be FDIC insured.
For purposes of calculating FDIC insurance limits, the cash balances in the Bank Deposit Sweep Program at any one of the Affiliated Banks will be combined with deposit balances held directly by or indirectly for you at the same bank (including checking accounts, CDs and other deposits in your name or held through an agent or fiduciary in the same capacity) in the same ownership category.
You are responsible for monitoring the total amount of all direct or indirect deposits held by you or for you with these banks for purposes of determining the amounts eligible for coverage by FDIC insurance, including deposits in brokerage sweep accounts and/or deposit accounts.
The limitations on FDIC coverage apply to your deposits, whether made by you, on your own, or through the Bank Deposit Sweep Program. To assist you with calculating your aggregated deposits and the associated insurance coverage, the FDIC has an online Electronic Deposit Insurance Estimator available at www.fdic.gov/edie.
Please see the Cash Sweep Program Disclosure Statement (PDF) for more information on FDIC insurance coverage.
