Not a deal, merely a reminder.

Savers will have an extra £10,000 safeguarded as of tomorrow, as the deposit protection limit is increased back up to £85,000 due to Sterling tanking.

The deposit protection limit under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), which is designed to protect consumers' cash should lenders run into hot water, was cut to £75,000 last year in an effort to put the UK in line with the European directive governing the scheme, which states the limit must be equivalent to €100,000.

Good to know for those with offset mortgages or lucky enough to have high savings. Thanks for this. Would I be correct in assuming joint accounts will be guaranteed up to £170k?

Yes that is correct.

This limit is still per license. Some banks having the same parent company will share the license.
