Account Protection

Broker Dealer Financial Services and First Clearing are members of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC).  SIPC protects clients against the custodial risk of a member brokerage firm becoming insolvent by replacing missing securities and cash up to $500,000, including up to $250,000 in cash, per client in accordance with SIPC rules.  (Note that SIPC coverage is not the same as nor is it a substitute for FDIC deposit insurance; securites purchased through First Clearing are not FDIC insured). 

Above and beyond SIPC coverage, First Clearing maintains additional insurance coverage provided through London Underwriters (led by Lloyd's of London Syndicate) ("Lloyds").  For clients who have received the full SIPC payout limit, First Clearing's policy with Lloyd's provides additional coverage above the SIPC limits for any missing securities and cash in client brokerage accounts up to a firm aggregate limit of $1 billion (including up to $1.9 million for cash per client).  In other words, the aggregate amount of all client losses covered under this policy are subject to a limit of $1 billion, with each client covered up to $1.9 million for cash.

Please not that coverage provided by SIPC and Lloyd's does not protect against loss of market value of securities. 


Securities are offered through Broker Dealer Financial Services Corp. (BDFSC) and advisory services are offered through Investment Advisors Corp. (IAC).  Securities products are not FDIC insured, or insured by any Government Agency, nor are they deposits or obligations guaranteed by Citizens State Bank, BDFSC or IAC.  The purchase of such securities involves risk including the possbile loss of principal.
