Important information about compensation arrangements

In the event that AIB Group (UK) p.l.c. is unable to meet its financial obligations, your eligible deposits are protected up to a total of £75,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the UK’s deposit protection scheme. This limit is applied to the total of any eligible deposits you have with First Trust Bank in Northern Ireland and Allied Irish Bank (GB) and Allied Irish Bank (GB) Savings Direct in Great Britain, each a trading name of AIB Group (UK) p.l.c. In the case of joint accounts, each account holder is protected up to this limit.


Any total deposits you hold above £75,000 between these trading names are unlikely to be covered.


For further information about the scheme (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim), please ask at your local branch, view the FSCS brochure or refer to the FSCS website


Note: Until 31 December 2015 individuals and small companies will continue to be protected up to £85,000 by the FSCS. From 1 January 2016 the deposit protection limit will reduce to £75,000.
