Halifax customer protection

FSCS protects the following Halifax accounts:

  • Halifax current accounts.
  • Halifax savings accounts.
  • Halifax cash ISA accounts.

We would step in to pay you compensation if Halifax (formerly known as Halifax Building Society) went out of business 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.
