Securities Investor Protection Corp ("SIPC")
Investors benefit from industry-wide, yet limited protection of their investment and retirement accounts. SIPC is an investor’s first line of defense in the event a brokerage firm fails, thereby owing its customers cash and or securities. When a brokerage firm is forced to close because of bankruptcy or financial difficulty, SIPC quickly steps in, and within certain limits, works to return customer's cash and securities.
