The Deposit Guarantee Scheme (DGS) 

23 November 2015

The Deposit Guarantee Scheme website is now live, with the most recent information on the scheme.

The Deposit Guarantee Scheme (DGS) protects depositors in the event of a bank, building society or credit union authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland being unable to repay deposits.

Deposits up to €100,000 per person per institution are protected. The DGS is obliged to issue compensation to depositors duly verified as eligible within 20 working days of a credit institution failing.

The DGS is administered by the Central Bank of Ireland and is funded by the credit institutions covered by the scheme. The DGS is part of the Central Bank of Ireland’s strategy to ensure that the best interests of consumers of financial services are protected.
