Important information about compensation arrangements
Bank of India is a member of Financial Services Compensation Scheme
On 30th January 2017 the deposit protection limit is changing from £75,000 to £85,000.
If your bank, building society or credit union fails, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) protects your eligible deposits up to the deposit protection limit (currently £75,000 for most depositors).
If you have eligible deposits of more than £75,000 and up to GBP 85,000, you are likely to be fully protected after 30th January 2017.
From 30th January 2017, your eligible deposits with BANK OF INDIA will be protected up to a total of £85,000 by the FSCS. The limit is applied to the total of your eligible deposits held with the following UK branches of Bank of India: London, Eastham, Wembley, Birmingham, Leicester, Manchester & Glasgow branches in UK.
PLEASE CONTACT YOUR BANK OF INDIA BRANCH FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON KEEPING YOUR MONEY PROTECTED.
If you have total eligible deposits of less than £75,000 with BANK OF INDIA in UK, then you will not be affected by the limit change.
Further information regarding the protection provided by FSCS is set out below.
General limit of protection Your eligible deposits held at the same bank, building society or credit union are added up in order to determine the coverage level. If, for instance, you hold eligible deposits in a savings account with £70,000 and a current account with £20,000, you will only be repaid £85,000.
The FSCS protects most depositors, including individuals and small companies, up to £85,000 until 30th January 2017.
Eligible deposits of large companies and small local authorities are eligible for FSCS protection from 3 July 2015 onwards. The £85,000 deposit protection limit will apply from 30th January 2017.
