In most cases, FSCS aims to make payment within seven days from the date we declared it failed, on 4 May 2022. For more complex cases, which may require further investigation, we'll aim to settle claims within 10 working days of being notified of the issue.

If you have a balance below £1,000, you will get a letter to get cash over the counter at the Post Office. To receive payment, take this letter to any Post Office counter, with personal identification, as outlined in that letter.

If you have a balance over £1,000, you will receive a cheque. In both events, we will contact you by post in an unmarked envelope. 

FSCS will receive information from North East Warrington Credit Union Ltd that will detail your individual credit balance. The payment you receive will be the balance on your account on the date FSCS declared North East Warrington Credit Union Ltd as failed, on 4 May 2022.

If you disagree with the amount paid by FSCS, please call the Administrators’ team on 0161 532 4621 or email them at and they will look into your query. Do not return your payment to FSCS unless you're specifically asked 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.
