THE Central Bank has sought to reassure the remaining customers of the former Anglo Irish Bank with deposits of up to €100,000 that their money is secure.
Officials in Dame Street said the appointment of a special liquidator to the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation (IBRC) triggers the Deposit Guarantee Scheme and the Eligible Liabilities Guarantee for the remaining depositors.
“The Central Bank will arrange the repayment of duly verified and eligible deposits, up to a limit of €100,000 per person, to eligible depositors at IBRC,” a statement from the Central Bank said this morning.
It said depositors do not need to take any action, with the Central Bank making payments directly by cheque were applicable.
“It is expected that all such eligible deposits under the DGS will be repaid over the coming weeks,” the Central Bank said.
