Financial Services Compensation Scheme
Important information about compensation arrangements
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 businesses - are covered by the scheme.
In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000 (with effect from 30/01/17). 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 scheme (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please ask a member of staff, refer to the FSCS website www.FSCS.org.uk or call 0207 741 4100 or 0800 678 1100.
