As a Faifley Credit Union Ltd customer, you don't need to worry, as your money is safe. FSCS will automatically pay back your money, according to the account information we receive from Faifley Credit Union. We'll contact you by post.

In most cases, FSCS aims to make payment within seven days from the date it failed, on 23 November 2020. For more complex cases, which may require further investigation, we'll aim to settle claims within 15 working days of being notified of the issue.

All members will receive a cheque sent by post in an unmarked envelope. 

FSCS will receive information from Faifley Credit Union Ltd that will detail your individual credit balance. The amount of payment you receive will be the balance on your account as at the date FSCS declared Faifley Credit Union Ltd failed, on 23 November 2020. 

If you disagree with the amount paid by FSCS, please contact the administrator's team on 0141 432 1128, 0113 244 5141 or via email faifleycu@geoffreymartin.co.uk and they'll look into your query. Do not return your payment to FSCS unless you're specifically requested to do so.

You'll need to open a bank account with another deposit taker (e.g. a bank, building society or the Post Office). You should bank the cheque as soon as possible.

If your salary or benefits are paid into your account at Faifley Credit Union, you'll need to open a new account elsewhere – and tell your employer or the Department for Work and Pensions.
