On September 8th 2014, FSCS is launching its ‘Protecting Your Future’ consumer awareness programme.
Our objective is to reassure people that their deposits in UK authorised banks, building societies and credit unions are protected up to £85,000*. FSCS research shows that building awareness of the Scheme aids consumer confidence.
The success of this programme depends on continuous active support from authorised financial firms. Awareness of FSCS helps to restore confidence in financial products and providers and therefore contributes to confidence in the market overall.
The supporting materials provided below are for firms to use to ensure their front line staff are ready to answer questions from customers about FSCS. The disclosure materials are also included for firms to use in their marketing collateral. This will help to reinforce awareness of FSCS with consumers and will reassure them that firms are protected by FSCS.
If you have any comments, please email email@example.com.
*From 3 July 2015, the FSCS will provide a £1 million protection limit for temporary high balances held with your bank, building society or credit union if it fails. Read our Q&As about temporary high balances for more information.
*From 1 January 2016 deposit limit for bank accounts will be £75,000, and £150,000 for joint accounts. The £75,000 figure is the sterling equivalent of €100,000 as required by the recast Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive.
