Greater Milton and Possilpark Credit Union Ltd has failed
The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) has announced the failure of Glasgow-based Greater Milton and Possilpark Credit Union Limited, which was declared in default on 12 March, 2019. This means the credit union can’t pay money to its 4,212 members. FSCS is stepping in to protect customers and we expect to pay a total of £3.4 million to all customers within seven days of the failure being declared. We’ll send payments to members automatically, using the credit union’s records.
