Opening a bank account

Is my money safe with Tide?

Yes. If you have a ClearBank account, like most of our members, then eligible deposits up to £85,000 are protected by the UK Government’s deposit guarantee scheme, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). You can tell whether your account is a ClearBank account, if its sort code is 04-06-05. In the past we offered e-money accounts to new customers, which we no longer do. If you still have an e-money account with us, then the funds in your account are stored and protected. With an e-money account, your money is never invested or loaned out, and is safeguarded in line with regulatory requirements. FSCS protection does not apply to the legacy e-money accounts. You can tell whether your account is a legacy e-money account, if its sort code is 23-69-72.
