FSCS is able to protect customers of authorised financial services firms that carry out certain regulated activities. A declaration of default means the Scheme is satisfied a firm is unable to pay claims for compensation made against it. This paves the way for customers of that firm to make a claim for compensation with FSCS.
Let’s recall that FSCS declared 15 failed firms in default in February 2020. For the period between November 1, 2019 and January 31, 2020, a total of 30 firms were declared in default by the Scheme.
Since it began operating in 2001, FSCS has helped more than 4.5 million people, paying out more than £26 billion in compensation. The Scheme paid a total of £473 million in compensation to 425,760 customers of failed firms during 2018/19. This amount compares with the £405 million FSCS paid in compensation in the previous year.
