On April 1st some of the FSCS compensation limits are increasing. While we hope that none of your customers will ever need to claim you must ensure any documents, templates or websites reflect the changes.
Depending on terminology your Proposition / Disclosure / Terms of Business will have the limits in them and so may websites and suitability reports etc.
Briefly, the maximum payment for investment business is still 100% of any claim but the cap is increasing from £50,000 to £85,000.
Similarly, the maximum payment for mortgage business is still 100% of any claim but the cap, again, is increasing from £50,000 to £85,000.
Other non-investment insurance limits are unchanged.
And for debt management firms the maximum payment is still 100% of any claim but the cap is increasing from £50,000 to £85,000.
