What is “FID BKG SVC LLC” On Your Bank Statement? (2022)

If you see ‘FID BKG SVC LLC’ appear on your bank account transaction history, it is typically the result of a transfer of funds you made into a Fidelity Brokerage Services account.

The label ‘FID BKG SVC LLC’ can be broken down as follows:

  • FID: Fidelity
  • BKG: Brokerage
  • SVC: Services
  • LLC: Limited Liability Company

Fidelity Brokerage Services is one of the main operating arms of the Fidelity Investments company.

Along with the brokerage firm, Fidelity Investments also manage mutual and index funds, provide investment, retirement and wealth services, as well as life insurance to name the least.

The Fidelity account into which your funds were deposited may be either of the following:

  • a brokerage trading account, or
  • a traditional, rollover or Roth IRA

Rest assured this is not a scam unless you never transferred the money in the first place.

The transfer should appear as a deduction in your account and therefore should appear with a ‘-‘ sign in front of the transaction amount.

Why does “FID BKG SVC LLC” appear on my statement when I don’t have a Fidelity account?

The message may appear on your bank statement because either:

  • you have forgotten that you opened a Fidelity account, or
  • perhaps the bank has made an error, or
  • there is fraudulent activity on your bank account

Determine whether the amount on your bank statement is the result of a credit into your account or a deduction.

Usually a symptom of a scam is when a small amount of money has been deposited into your account.

Another sign of suspicious activity is when a large deduction as a result of your credit card being used fraudulently has been made.

In either of these scenarios, it is important to compile as much information as you can, before filing a dispute with your bank, or contacting Fidelity Brokerage customer service directly.

This is particularly important in cases where you neither do not own a Fidelity debit/credit card nor do you have any open Fidelity accounts.

Someone may have opened a credit card under your name unbeknownst to you and has made them appear as Fidelity Brokerage transactions in an attempt to look legitimate, as well as paying off the balance every month to operate under the radar.

In most cases though, the “FID BKG SVC LLC” label is the result of you transferring funds into your Fidelity account, whether you remember it or not.
