Making a claim
If you think you have a claim against a financial firm that’s failed, you could claim compensation through us. It’s completely free and we’ll tell you straight away if you’re eligible when you claim online.
There are some eligibility criteria you must meet to be able to claim with us.
For years I had thought I had lost all of my pension money that I had invested, which turned out to be a bad investment. Thanks to you all at FSCS, you were able to get my money back. I am so grateful for all you have done for me.

How the claims process works
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.
Find out how the whole claims process works, the different types of claims, and your options if you're unhappy.
The rules around those who are and are not eligible for compensation are set for us.
