How is the Financial Claims Scheme limit applied?

The Financial Claims Scheme (FCS) limit of $250,000 applies to the sum of an account holder's deposits under the one banking license.

Therefore, all deposits held by an account holder with a single banking institution must be added together towards the $250,000 FCS limit, and this includes accounts with any other banking businesses that the licenced banking institution may operate under a different trading name.

Visit the FCS website for more information.
