Three piles of money

Consumers could be entitled to claim up to £48,000 in compensation from firms that have been declared in default.

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), which is the fund of last resort for compensation claims, says 34 financial services firms have recently been declared in default. It is urging anyone who has suffered a financial loss as a result of any dealings with these firms (see full list below) to contact it and see if they could be entitled to any compensation.

Jonathan Clark, a director at FSCS, says: "It is important that customers of any of the 34 firms we have recently declared in default are aware that FSCS may be able to help, if they have suffered a financial loss."

A firm is declared in default if it is unable to pay any claims made against it. When this happens, all claims are referred to the FSCS.

This could include investment, insurance or mortgage firms offering advice or selling products such as endowment mortgages.
