Government approves raise in bank-deposit guarantee to €100,000


The government on 19 October approved a decision to double the bank-deposit guarantee limit to €100,000 from €50,000. The money is to be paid out within 20 days of the Financial Supervisory Commission (KNF) deciding to put a bank into administration.

The change is meant to boost confidence in the country’s financial sector among individuals and small and medium enterprises. It transposes provisions of the EU directive on deposit guarantee schemes.

It is the second such change in two years. In October 2008, at the height of the financial crisis, the Sejm voted to double the country’s deposit guarantee limit from €22,500.
