DEPOSIT GUARANTEE

Deposit guarantee covers funds on a depositor's deposit account in the event of default by a deposit bank.

Here you will find information on what the deposit guarantee scheme is, how it works and how a depositor should act in a compensation event.

Deposit guarantee schemes have been harmonised in key respects across the EU member states. Deposit guarantee is regulated by the EU Deposit Guarantee Directive, which was implemented as part of domestic legislation by the Act on the Financial Stability Authority.
