Deposit Insurance Scheme

The Deposit Insurance Scheme (‘the scheme’) was established under the Deposit Insurance Act. The scheme provides compensation to individuals and charities up to a maximum of S$75,000 in aggregate across insured deposits placed with full banks and finance companies in Singapore (‘scheme members’).

The scheme compensates depositors through a deposit insurance fund built up from contributions by the scheme members. The scheme is administered by the Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation Limited (‘SDIC’) and the SDIC manages the deposit insurance fund.
