Making a claim with FSCS
We accept online claims for insurance, mortgages, pensions, payment protection insurance, investments and debt management.
- If your bank, building society or credit union has failed you don’t need to make a claim. We’ll return your money automatically, up to our compensation limit.
- If it’s your insurance company that has failed, we’ll try to get seamless cover with another insurer. If that’s not possible we’ll look to arrange the return of the remaining premium.
- For all other claims, you’ll need to use our online claims service.
Making a claim with FSCS is free and you'll keep 100% of your compensation.
