3 ) Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)
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 small businesses £ are covered by the Scheme.
In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £75,000. 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 £75,000 each (making a total of £150,000). The £75,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositors account with the Bank, including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.
Temporary high balances
In some cases, an eligible deposit which is categorised as "a "temporary high balance" (for example, as a result of a house sale, inheritance, or insurance payment) may be protected to a higher limit for six months after the amount has been credited to your account or from the moment when such eligible deposits become legally transferable.
For further information about the scheme (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please call us on 0845 602 6966, ask at your local branch for details, refer to the FSCS website www.FSCS.org.uk or call 0800 678 1100
