About Us

For the past 21 years, FSCS has been getting customers of failed authorised financial services firms back on track.

Our strength is in our numbers. Since 2001, we have helped 6.5m customers and paid back £26bn in compensation. Over the years we have continually strived to be better, faster, and more empathetic to our customers’ needs in an ever more complex financial world. Our people have worked together to make sure we can offer protection and reassurance every step of the way, even during the toughest of times over the last two years. FSCS is an organisation that makes a difference, and in which our people truly make a difference.

We have grown from modest beginnings in 2001 to helping customers during historic events such as the 2008 banking crisis and supporting vulnerable customers during the pandemic. As a result of this success, FSCS has become increasingly respected, insightful, and influential in the regulatory eco-system. It is an exciting time in our journey as we now have an opportunity to play a bigger role in breaking the cycle of rising consumer harm and costs; by being part of a system that is about prevention rather than cure.


The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) helps people get back on track by protecting them when authorised financial services firms fail. We’re independent and cover all regulated financial services in the UK. Since our launch in 2001 we’ve come to the aid of millions of people and paid out billions in compensation.
