Legal notice

Customer deposits at Landesbank Saar (SaarLB, SaarLB France) and LBS Landesbausparkasse Saar are protected by the deposit insurance system of the Savings Banks Finance Group.

The task of the deposit insurance system is to avert economic difficulties at the affiliated institutions by protecting the going concern of the member institutions. The primary objective is therefore to protect these institutions, in particular to ensure their liquidity and solvency. However, this is also intended to prevent the occurrence of a deposit insurance case and to protect customers’ business relationships.

Since the creation of the deposit insurance system in the 1970s, no member institution has become insolvent. No customer in the Savings Banks Finance Group has yet lost deposits or the interest owed on them.
The Deposit Insurance Act (Einlagensicherungsgesetz – EinSiG) entered into force in Germany on 3 July 2015. The law implements the corresponding EU directive. The Savings Banks Finance Group has realigned its tried and tested deposit insurance system to these legal requirements. It was recognised as a deposit insurance system under the Deposit Insurance Act.

1. Voluntary institutional insurance
The primary objective of the deposit insurance system is to protect the member institutions themselves and to avert imminent or existing financial difficulties. In this way, a deposit insurance case is to be avoided and the business relationship with the customer is to be continued permanently and without restriction.

2. Statutory deposit insurance
If, in exceptional cases, the institutional insurance does not apply, the customer has a claim against the deposit insurance system for reimbursement of their deposits up to a maximum of EUR 100,000. The Deposit Insurance Act is authoritative for this.

For us, your satisfaction comes first We consider it important to give you the opportunity to express criticism. We have therefore set up a Complaints Office and introduced complaint management measures.

The goal of our complaint management is to ensure that customer complaints are handled appropriately and promptly. Complaints received are evaluated in order to correct recurring errors or problems. This is how we try to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction and long-term customer loyalty.
This policy provides you with an overview of the complaint handling procedure for you.

All (potential) customers – for example, individuals, organisations or companies that are affected by a service or business activity of SaarLB can lodge a complaint.

The SaarLB Complaints Office is responsible for handling complaints. You can submit complaints to SaarLB electronically, in writing or verbally.
Complaints submitted electronically can be sent to the email address

For written complaints, please contact:
Board of Management
Complaint Management
Ursulinenstraße 2
66111 Saarbrucken

We need the following information to handle your complaint:

  • Your full contact details (address, telephone number, email address, if applicable);
  • description of facts;
  • formulation of the request or indication of what is to be achieved with the complaint (for example, rectification of errors, improvement of services, clarification of a disagreement);
  • copies of documents necessary to understand the case (if available);
  • authorisation to represent a person, if you contact us in the name of and on behalf of another person.

You will always receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your complaint. If we are able to process and close the complaint quickly, you will receive a response instead of an acknowledgement of receipt.
