People who have dealt with any of the 10 firms listed below, and believe they are owed money as a result, can now make a claim to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
This vital service, which is free to consumers, protects money held in bank, building society and credit union accounts. It also protects pensions, insurance, investments, mortgage advice and arranging, and debt management.
Emma Barrow, Head of Communications at FSCS, said:
“We know FSCS protection contributes to consumers’ confidence in financial services in the UK. So, we are reaching out to those who have lost money and may be able to benefit from that protection by claiming against a firm that has failed.
“Customers can claim directly with FSCS for free via our website, which provides the easy-to-use service they expect. Help is on hand throughout the process, with claims experts available through web chat or over the phone.”
FSCS began in 2001 and since then has helped 5.5m people.
