Deposit guarantee scheme

If your bank goes bankrupt or runs into trouble, you will not lose all your money. This is because there is a guarantee system in place to help account holders: the Deposit Guarantee Scheme (DGS).

Not all deposits are covered by the DGS. The type of bank account that you have is also important.

Find out if your bank is covered and check the DGS register.
