HSBC customer protection

FSCS protects the following HSBC accounts:

  • HSBC current accounts.
  • HSBC savings accounts.
  • HSBC cash ISA accounts.

We would step in to pay you compensation if HSBC went out of business and couldn’t pay back your money itself.

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

FSCS protects firms that the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) authorises. A list of the banks the PRA authorises can be found on the PRA's website.

See a full list of banking and building society brands and authorisations FSCS protects.
