Depositor`s acknowledgement of receipt:
If the deposit is unavailable because the credit institution is unable to meet its financial obligations, depositors are compensated by the deposit protection system. This payment covers a maximum of 50,000 euros per depositor per credit institution until the day of Montenegro's accession to the European Union and 100,000 euros as of the EU accession date. This means that all deposits per depositor in the same credit institution are aggregated to determine the level of coverage. For example, if a depositor holds 90,000 euros in their savings account and 20,000 euros in their current account, they will be compensated only 50,000 euros until the EU accession date, that is, 100,000 euros as of the EU accession date.
In case of joint accounts, the 50,000 euro coverage is applied to every separate depositor until the EU accession date and 100,000 euro coverage as of the EU accession date.
However, deposits in an account to which two or more persons are entitled, as members of a company without legal personality, are collected and treated as funds of one depositor for the purpose of calculating the limit of 50,000 euros until the date of Montenegro`s accession to the EU, i.e. 100,000 euros as of Montenegro`s accession to the EU.
In some cases, deposits representing a temporary high balance are insured for additional 30,000 euros or up to a total of 80,000 euros until the date of Montenegro's accession to the EU, i.e. 130,000 euros from the date of Montenegro's accession to the European Union, for six months after the amount has been credited or from the moment when such deposits become legally transferable, and they cover the deposits arising from:
1) real estate transactions relating to private residential properties
2) transactions that are linked to: marriage, divorce, retirement severance pay, dismissal, invalidity or death
3) the payment of insurance benefits or compensation for criminal injuries or mistakes made by judicial authorities, government authorities, public administration bodies, and local government authorities. For any additional information please
