      Useful information about the FSCS

      The scheme pays compensation if a firm is unable, or likely to be unable, to pay claims against it. The scheme is an independent body and it's free to consumers.

        Each person is covered for up to £85,000 of deposits (total across all accounts) with each firm. If you have a joint account, you're covered for up to £170,000.

          Tesco Bank is separately authorised and covered by the guarantee. Any customer with deposits would get back £85,000. The guarantee applies to each institution separately authorised by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority).

            Joint account holders are each entitled to claim compensation. For joint accounts the balance is owned by both account holders equally and half of the balance will form part of each party’s FSCS allowance.
