First direct

First direct protection

FSCS protects the following first direct accounts:

  • First direct current accounts.
  • First direct savings accounts.
  • First direct cash ISA accounts.

We would step in to pay you compensation if first direct failed and couldn’t pay back your money itself.

You wouldn’t need to do anything - we would automatically compensate you up to our current compensation limit for single and joint accounts.

FSCS protects firms that the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) authorises. View a list of the banks the PRA authorises on the PRA's website.
