  1. When will FSCS be sending out application forms?

    FSCS has now sent application forms to WorldSpreads clients that have been identified as having a likely claim for compensation. In some instances, where client balances are very small a form has not been sent, however clients can request an application form for completion should they wish to make a claim.

    Should you not have received an email from FSCS containing an application form and you wish to make a claim for compensation from FSCS, please contact FSCS on freephone 0800 678 1100 or 0207 741 4100 and a form will be posted to you.

  2. What should I do once I have received an application form but if I am unsure how to complete it?

    Once received, please try to complete the application form to the best of your ability, and avoid leaving any questions blank. The completed form should then be returned along with any documentation that you believe is relevant to the claim.

    If you have specific queries about individual questions on the form, please contact the FSCS helpline on 0800 678 1100 or 0207 741 4100 and we will be happy to help you.

  3. How long will the FSCS take to process my claim?

    If claimants who have returned a completed application form to the FSCS are found to be eligible, and have agreed a final balance with KPMG, the FSCS will seek to pay compensation as quickly as possible.
