  1. Building society windfalls are back. Members of Barnsley Building Society will receive up to £5,000 after the mutual recovered money tied up in failed Icelandic banks. Barnsley was forced to merge with Yorkshire Building Society after £10m it had deposited with two Icelandic banks, Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander and Heritable Bank, was feared lost. But at the time of the merger it promised that any money it recovered from the banks' administrators would be returned to its savers and borrowers. It has now said that £8.8m has been recovered after a four-year process. Barnsley's savers will receive 3.31pc of their total savings balance held with the society on October 21 2008, subject to a minimum of £25 and a maximum of £5,000. Borrowers will get a flat payment of £250, although all payments will be taxed at source. In all, about 28,000 account holders will benefit. To qualify for the windfalls, savers and borrowers are required to have maintained continuous membership between October 21 2008 and October 21 this year with one or more of the brands in the Yorkshire Group, which also includes Chelsea and Norwich & Peterborough building societies and Egg. Eligible members have already started to receive their payments and the distribution process should be completed by December 21, Barnsley said.
