    Hi Alison. Can both my wife and I take out individual term deposits of $250k and be covered by the Australian Government Deposit Guarantee Scheme?

      Hi Steve,

      Yes. In general, the Australian bank Government Guarantee protects your deposit up to the value of $250,000. This cap applies per person and per Authorised Deposit-taking Institution (ADI). For joint accounts, each person is entitled to an individual guarantee. For example, for a joint account holding two people, the account is covered up to $500,000.
