About DPF

The Deposit Protection Fund of Uganda (DPF) is a Government Agency that provides deposit insurance to customers of deposit-taking institutions licensed by Bank of Uganda.

The DPF, which is also referred to as the Fund, was established as a separate legal entity following the enactment of the Financial Institutions (Amended) Act, 2016. Prior to this, DPF was managed by Bank of Uganda.
