Financial Services Compensation Scheme

Compensation
In certain circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme if The Equitable Life Assurance Society cannot meet its liabilities to you in full.  This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim. Most types of investment business are covered for up to a maximum of £50,000.  For long term insurance business (such as pension plans and life assurance) the Scheme will cover 100% of the claim with no upper limit.  Further information is available from:
