Are the Robinhood Checking and Savings Accounts FDIC Insured?

Robinhood recently announced a spectacular deal on checking and savings accounts: 3% interest! This is a rate that beats most bank savings accounts as well as many bank-offered CD (Certificate of Deposit) interest rates.

While the Robinhood accounts are not FDIC insured, they are SIPC insured. Although these insurances are not equivalent, they do offer some level of protection for your money. To learn more about FDIC and SIPC insurance, check out this USA Today article.

Welcome to the all new Robinhood, now with all the stuff you’d want from checking and savings—but way better.
