Important information about compensation arrangements

We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a building society is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors - including most individuals and small businesses - are covered by the scheme.

In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to 85,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share, so for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be 85,000 each (making a total of 170,000). The 85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor's accounts with the building society, including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.

Yorkshire Building Society (YBS) also operates under the trading names of Barnsley Building Society (BBS), Chelsea Building Society (CBS), Norwich & Peterborough Building Society (N&P) and Egg. YBS is a participant of the FSCS. Therefore, depositors with any of YBS, BBS, CBS, N&P and Egg have an overall limit of 85,000 under the FSCS.

Accord Mortgages Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of YBS. Accord has offset mortgage products where the customer's deposits are held on behalf of Accord by YBS. Accord offset depositors are therefore covered, (along with BBS, CBS, N&P and Egg depositors) by YBS being a participant in the FSCS. There is no additional protection for depositors with Accord Mortgages Limited.
