Your eligible deposits with TSB are protected up to a total of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the UK's deposit protection scheme.
Your deposits with us are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors - including most individuals and small businesses - are covered by the scheme.
In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor's accounts with the bank including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.
For further information about the compensation provided by the FSCS (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please ask at your local branch, refer to the
FSCS website or call the FSCS on 020 77 414 100 or 08006 781 100 . Please note only compensation related queries should be directed to the FSCS.
Accounts with TSB Bank plc include accounts in all its divisions and under trading name TSB and TSB Business. An eligible depositor's £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all accounts with TSB Bank plc.
