The Financial Claims Scheme (FCS) is an Australian Government scheme that provides protection to deposits in banks, building societies and credit unions in the unlikely event that one of these financial institutions fails. The FCS has also been referred to as the Australian Government deposit guarantee.
Under the FCS, eligible deposits are protected up to a limit of $250,000 for each account holder at each bank, building society or credit union incorporated in Australia and licensed by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).
The FCS can only come into effect if it is activated by the Australian Government when an institution fails. Once activated, the FCS will be administered by APRA.
The objectives of the FCS are to:
- Protect depositors of banks, building societies and credit unions incorporated in Australia from potential loss due to the failure of these institutions
- Provide depositors with prompt access to their deposits that are protected under the FCS
- Support the stability of the Australian financial system.
The following frequently asked questions relate to the Financial Claims Scheme for banks, building societies and credit unions.
For further information about the Scheme: visit APRA’s Financial Claims Scheme website here or contact APRA by phone on 1300 558 849.

Members of credit unions, mutual banks and mutual building societies can have confidence in knowing they are covered by a market leading, plain English commitment to fair and responsible banking. The Code is just another example of the value customer owned banking institutions place on improving the financial wellbeing of their members and their communities.

What is Open Banking?
Open Banking, also called the Consumer Data Right, aims to provide greater choice and control for Australians over how their data is used and disclosed. It will allow consumers to access particular information in a usable form and to direct a business to securely transfer that information to an accredited data recipient. To find out who is accredited by the ACCC to receive data through Open Banking, take a look at the Consumer Data Right website.
Open Banking is a service that gives you greater access and control of your banking product and service information. It may improve the way you compare products and services between providers, so it is easier for you to find what best meets your needs.
The Australian Government passed the Consumer Data Right (CDR) legislation in 2019, which is often referred to by the banking industry as Open Banking.
When is it available?
Product information – October, 2020
Generic information about savings, transaction, term deposits, loan and credit card products including features, eligibility, rates and fees will be available from Thursday 1st October 2020.
This is available through a new Product API (Application Programming Interface).
This will enable other providers to use this information to compare banking products for consumers, and as such increase competition and make it easier for you to compare products and services.
Customer and account transaction data – July 2021
As at 1 July 2021, The Capricornian as a Data Holder remains unable to facilitate consumer data sharing. We are working closely with the ACCC under a rectification schedule to ensure we can provide this service to our members as soon as possible.
As we get closer to being able to deliver customer and transactional data, further information will be available to show you how to consent to and share your data. This will occur via your internet banking and banking app access.
As always, our priority is protecting your privacy and information.
We have strict requirements for collecting, accessing, storing and sharing your information to ensure your data remains safe.
You are in control of your data, including who can have it and how it is used, there will be new privacy safeguards such as consent requirements to enable this. These safeguards have been established by the Consumer Data Right legislation and adherence to those rules will be monitored and any breach can result in substantial penalties.
You can request The Capricornian Ltd to stop sharing your data with other third parties at any time, or if a third party is retrieving your data, you can request to have it deleted.
For more information about the Consumer Data Right (CDR), please visit the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website or email our team at email@example.com.
