The Financial Services Compensation Scheme ("FSCS")
The FSCS protects UK policyholders, generally individuals or small businesses, who are eligible to claim under the Policyholder Protection Rules. Based on the Administrators’ current understanding of the Company’s policyholders, it is expected that a significant number will meet the FSCS’ eligibility rules.
Further to an amendment to the Policyholder Protection Rules on 8 October 2020, building guarantee policyholders protected by the FSCS scheme will receive compensation at 100% of EWIC’s liability for claims.
Further details can be found on the FSCS website at fscs.org.uk/what-we-cover/insurance/
