Important information about compensation arrangements
To print a copy of the FSCS compensation leaflet please click on the image
We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if
a bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors - including most individuals and small businesses
- are covered by the scheme. In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000. For
joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account
held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of
£170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor’s accounts with
the bank, including their share of any joint account and not to each separate account.
For further information about the compensation provided by the FSCS (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please:
- call us on 0844 9000 900*;
- ask at your local Santander branch;
- refer to the FSCS website www.FSCS.org.uk;
- or call the FSCS on 020 7741 4100 or 0800 678 1100.
Santander UK plc and cahoot
Santander UK plc is an authorised deposit taker and accepts deposits under the Santander and cahoot trading names. In the unlikely event of a claim, the maximum compensation levels above would apply to the combined total of all deposits held with Santander UK plc (including cahoot).

At cahoot we aim to satisfy our customers at all times. We have a complaints handling procedure in place to ensure that you receive a quick and fair response to any complaints you may have about our service.
If you make a complaint we will keep you informed of what is happening and we will do everything we can to help you. In the first instance your comments should be referred to our contact centre via contact us or by telephoning 0844 9000 900*. You can also write to us at the following address:
3rd Floor Friars House
Manor House Drive
It is our policy wherever possible to resolve all complaints within 24 hours (Monday – Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm). Alternatively you will receive an acknowledgement and a full reply promptly. If this is not possible, we will keep you informed on the progress of your complaint.
We expect the majority of complaints will be quickly and satisfactorily resolved by the contact centre. If you do not agree with our resolution of your complaint you can choose to come back to us via any of the routes above.
Alternatively, you can choose to go to the Financial Ombudsman Service (Ombudsman Service).
The Financial Ombudsman Service (Ombudsman Service) is an external body which plays a key role in the complaints process. The Ombudsman Service is an impartial and independent organisation formed to help settle individual disputes between consumers and financial services businesses without taking sides.
If we have not been able to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction once we have given you our decision, you may be able to refer your complaint to the Ombudsman Service. They will only investigate your complaint if you have already tried to resolve it with us first or if it has been more than eight weeks since you first raised your complaint with us.
You can email:
Or you can contact them at:
Financial Ombudsman Service
South Quay Plaza
183 Marsh Wall
London E14 9SR
Or you can call them on:
0800 0234 567 free for people phoning from a ‘fixed line’ (for example, a landline at home) or
0300 1239 123 free for mobile-phone users who pay a monthly charge for calls to numbers starting 01 or 02.
Further details about the Financial Ombudsman Service will be given with our final decision letter.
Using your own Solicitor or third party complaint-handling firm
Employing a third party complaint-handling firm, or a solicitor or Financial Adviser does not affect how we review your complaint. However, please be aware that:
- cahoot/Santander will not charge you to investigate your complaint
- cahoot/Santander will not be liable for any costs incurred if you decide to employ a third party to handle your complaint
- cahoot/Santander will generally only make a payment directly to our customer if your complaint is upheld and redress is due.
As part of our ongoing commitment to keeping our customers informed, Santander now publishes the number of complaints it has reported to the Financial Services Authority. This information relates to Santander UK plc, including cahoot, and can be viewed by clicking on the link above.
