Commonwealth and National Financial Services (NFS) are members of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), a federal nonprofit corporation that protects customer assets in the unlikely event that a member broker/dealer–RIA should fail to meet its financial obligations. This means that if your broker/dealer–RIA should fail, and NFS fails, then cash awaiting reinvestment and all securities held in your account are protected by SIPC coverage up to $500,000 (limited to $250,000 for claims in cash). Coverage does not protect against a decline in the market value of securities.
In addition, when you open up a Commonwealth brokerage account, your funds are automatically swept into the Commonwealth’s Brokerage Account Bank Deposit Sweep Program, which provides Federal Depository Insurance (FDIC).
