If you already have an account with a program bank and want to ensure that you get full FDIC Coverage* on any funds you deposit into your Empower Personal Cash account, you will need to opt out of that program bank.
Please contact UMB at 888-648-8563 be sure to mention the name of the financial institution.
*FDIC insurance up to $250,000 (including principal & interest) per depositor per program bank. The cash balance you place through the program is swept to one or more program banks where it earns a variable rate of interest and is eligible for FDIC insurance. If the number of program banks changes, the aggregate amount of available FDIC insurance could be higher or lower. If you have deposits at a program bank, you should consider electing not to use that bank by following the opt out instructions we provide. If you do so, the aggregate amount of FDIC insurance available to you will be lower. If you do not do so, your existing deposits and deposits through Empower Personal Cash™ at that program bank will be combined for the purposes of FDIC coverage, which could result in some of your funds at that program bank being uninsured. You can find a list of the program banks here: https://docs.empower.com/PDF/p/cash/program-banks.pdf
For more information on FDIC insurance coverage, please visit www.FDIC.gov. Customers are responsible for monitoring their total assets at each of the program banks to determine the extent of available FDIC insurance coverage in accordance with FDIC rules. Funds you place in the Empower Personal Cash™ Program are not covered by SIPC insurance.
