Financial Services Compensation Scheme
You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim.
The Co-operative Bank plc is covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), which would pay compensation of up to £85,000 to eligible depositors in the event of the Bank becoming insolvent. Britannia and smile are trading names of The Co-operative Bank and, as such, protection provided to depositors by the FSCS is limited to £85,000 for the total amount of combined deposits held with The Co-operative Bank, smile and Britannia.
Certain customers are not covered by the FSCS. The exclusions include large businesses or organisations, large companies, large mutual associations and local authorities: visit www.fscs.org.uk for further details.
Mortgage advising and arranging is covered up to a maximum limit of £50,000.
Insurance advising and arranging is covered for 90% of the claim, without any upper limit.
