FSCS – Protecting your money
FSCS protects you when financial firms fail. Set-up by parliament and funded by the financial services industry, we're a completely independent and free service. But we don't just cover banks and building societies. See our video below for an overview of what else FSCS protects.
To be certain, ask your financial provider if the product you're buying is FSCS protected.
If the worst happens and your financial firm fails, we may be able to get you compensation.
When you claim direct with FSCS, you pay no fees, and get 100% of the compensation you’re due. And we’re here to help you every step of the way with claims experts on hand to support you at every stage of your claim.
It’s straightforward to complete an application and you can do so in your own time. If you can’t finish it in one go, you can save it and come back to it later. You can also check your claim’s progress at any time in your online account.
If you think you’ve got a claim, click here to get started.
