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.
