About Furness Building Society

For over 150 years, Furness Building Society has been helping to build a brighter future for people and communities. As a mutual building society, we believe in the power of togetherness and always put our members’ needs first.

Our head office is located in the beautiful Cumbria countryside, but our products are available across England, Scotland, and Wales. Through a supportive, secure and accessible service, we aim to create an even better building society for future generations. We also take great pride in supporting the communities we serve through fundraising events, food bank donations, volunteering days, community support donations, and sponsorships.

Security and deposit guarantee

Deposits are eligible for protection by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) http://www.fscs.org.uk/. The FSCS is the United Kingdom’s statutory deposit guarantee scheme that covers deposits in individual savings accounts up to £85,000, per banking group regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority or the Prudential Regulation Authority. It is available for deposits with most UK high-street and online banks/building societies and means if the bank/building society fails, and deposits become unavailable, the scheme may cover your deposit account deposit up to the £85,000 per person, per banking group limit.

Compensation limits are per person per firm, not per deposit. Be aware that if you have other deposits with this building society (or banking group) then the £85,000 protection applies only to eligible deposits up to this limit.

Timescales for the return of your money can vary between different banks/building societies and banking groups. This building society holds funds under a trust model. Funds held under a trust model can take up to three months to be returned, but in most cases will be returned sooner than this.
