SIPC Protection

Securities Accounts (Apex)

tastyworks is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation ("SIPC"). Therefore, funds are available to meet customer claims up to $500,000, which includes a maximum of $250,000 for cash claims.  

Aside from the protection under SIPC, Apex Clearing (tastyworks' Clearing Firm) has arranged for additional coverage above the standard SIPC limits in the event of insolvency. This supplemental coverage protects securities and cash, up to an aggregate of $150 million, subject to maximum limits of $37.5 million for any one customer's securities and $900,000 for any one customer's cash. This "insurance above SIPC coverage" protection is supplemental to the coverage provided by the Securities and Investor Protection Act, which is administered by SIPC and is subject to certain conditions and limitations, details of which are available upon request.

Please note that both SIPC and "insurance above SIPC coverage" protect against the loss of securities and cash due to the insolvency of a brokerage firm, not against trading losses or fluctuation/ depreciation in the market value of customer securities.

For additional information on SIPC coverage, including a brochure upon request, please contact SIPC at or visit the SIPC website at
