Can't find your bank, building society or credit union?

FSCS protects your money up to £85,000 for all banks, building societies and credit unions that are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Eligibility criteria apply, but we generally protect individuals and most businesses.

If you can't find your bank, building society or credit union using the protection checker, FSCS might not protect your money. Results are based on the FCA’s financial services register, which you can search yourself to check if your firm is authorised.

Some types of firm may be authorised and appear on the financial services register, but if they are not a bank, building society or credit union, FSCS can’t protect money you hold with them if they fail.  For example, we can’t protect you if an e-money firm or payment services firm fails. You can check if your firm is an e-money firm or payment services firm by searching the financial services register.

FSCS does not protect money held with UK branches of passporting EEA banks, but the deposit compensation scheme in the bank’s home member state may provide protection.
