Dial-A-Cab Credit Union has failed

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) has announced the failure of Dial-A-Cab Credit Union Limited, based in London, which was declared in default on 4 September 2018.

This means the credit union can’t pay money to its 1,250 members. FSCS is stepping in to protect customers and we expect to pay over £21,000,000 to nearly all 1,250 customers within seven days of the failure being declared. We’ll send payments to members automatically, using the credit union’s records.

Jimmy Barber, Chief Operating Officer at FSCS, said:

“FSCS is committed to helping get people’s lives back on track by returning deposits as soon as we can. I’m pleased we’re able to return the majority of Dial-A-Cab customers’ deposits and that FSCS has lessened the disruption they would have otherwise experienced as a result of the credit union’s failure.”

FSCS protects up to £85,000 of money in UK authorised banks, building societies and credit unions. If you have a joint account, your money is protected up to £170,000. Customers with balances over our limits will be contacted directly by the administrators.

Please note: Dial-a-Cab Limited (Radio Circuit) of 39-47 East Road, London N1 6AH is unaffected by the administration of Dial-A-Cab Credit Union Limited.
