Financial Services Compensation Scheme eligibility questions
We want to make sure we have all the information we need from you to check if you’re covered under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). This scheme has been set up in the UK to pay eligible depositors compensation of up to £85,000 within its seven days target, in the unlikely event that a bank can’t meet its financial commitments.
Are you covered under the scheme?
The FSCS have rules about who could be eligible for compensation. Most depositors, including individuals and small organisations are covered. To find out if your organisation is eligible for the scheme, we need some information from you.
The questionnaire is very short and should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors – including most individuals and small businesses – are covered by the scheme.
In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor’s accounts with the bank, including their share of any joint account and not to each separate account.
For further information about the compensation provided by the FSCS (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please ask at your local branch, refer to the FSCS website www.FSCS.org.uk or call the FSCS on 020 7741 4100 or 0800 678 1100. Please note only compensation related queries should be directed to the FSCS.
