FSCS confirms 7 firms have been declared in default in August and September
Regular notice that consumers could be in line for compensation
FSCS has confirmed that the seven firms below are in default – which means they have gone out of business and are unable to meet any claim themselves.
Customers who are owed money by these firms can see how they’re protected by visiting FSCS here - https://www.fscs.org.uk/what-we-cover/.
If a regulated financial firm is no longer trading and can’t pay a customer’s claim, FSCS can step in to pay compensation. Our recent podcast explains more about what it means when we declare a firm in default: https://www.fscs.org.uk/news/podcasts/episode12/.
We’re independent and our service is free to customers. Our protection covers money held in bank, building society and credit union accounts, and also protects insurance, investments, mortgage advice and arranging, debt management and funeral plans. Customers keep all the compensation they’re owed when they claim directly through us.
FSCS Chief Communications Officer, Lila Pleban said:
“Between April and the end of August this year FSCS processed 67,162 claims, paying customers around £184m in compensation to get them back on track when financial firms have failed.
“Our highly skilled and experienced claims staff are ready to help people when a firm that owes them money stops trading. It’s also easy for customers to claim directly, free of charge on the FSCS website.”
