Is Rocket Dollar FDIC insured?
Rocket Dollar's bank partner, Solera National Bank, offers FDIC-insured accounts.
FDIC insurance is for basic banking cash deposits, but not investments or securities, except in the case of fraud.
Our preferred banking partner, which opens your bank accounts, holds FDIC insurance for all their customers' cash and deposits up to the usual $250,000 per depositor.
For an IRA LLC, assets are purchased and held in name of the IRA LLC. The LLC has a checking account with the bank. All cash held in the checking account or cash returned to the same checking account after a sale of an asset are held in an FDIC insured bank account.
For a Solo 401(k), assets that are purchased are held in the name of the Solo 401(k), for which you are the plan trustee. All cash or cash returned after a sale of an asset is held in an FDIC insured bank account.
