About The Program > Cash Management Services > Sweeps

No matter how busy you are, with PLGIT's Sweep Program, your funds move automatically from your local bank account to a designated PLGIT account. Funds swept to PLGIT begin earning interest immediately and are completely liquid.

PLGIT does not charge for Sweep services. You save time and money.  

The quicker funds are invested, the more you earn. With PLGIT's Sweep service, funds are swept into a high-yielding PLGIT account as often as daily. Your funds are immediately 100% invested without the reserve requirement charged by most banks.

The longer funds are invested, the more you earn. By utilizing PLGIT's check writing along with sweeps, your funds will remain invested until your checks clear, providing higher earnings.

The less you pay in service fees, the better your net return. PLGIT's Sweep and check writing services will lower or eliminate bank service fees, thus providing a higher net return. Those using compensating balances to pay for services will be able to lower required balances, increasing the amount of funds available to invest. The bottom line is that your funds can work harder and longer for you.

Your PLGIT statement will clearly identify each deposit made to your designated PLGIT account. Sweep transactions will match withdrawals on your bank statement, thus providing a clear audit trail.

There are two options available:

  • PLGIT will view your bank account balance and automatically move available funds to a designated PLGIT account. You set the parameters for frequency and amount of the sweeps.
  • PLGIT will work with your bank to develop a system that allows the local bank, or PLGIT, to monitor and move deposited funds, per your instructions, automatically. View this letter to see what information your bank will need.

PLGIT will establish automatic sweeps with any bank. The following banks currently participate in our Sweep Program:

  • First National Bank of West Chester
  • Curwensville State Bank
