UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) is the body which gives you automatic protection up to £85,000 if your bank, building society or credit union goes out of business. The FSCS is funded by the financial services industry and is free to all consumers. So, you can be safe in the knowledge that your savings are protected.
