Claim the PPI Compensation You Are Entitled to Before August 2019

Since 2011, there have been a large number of articles in the media highlighting the mis-selling of payment protection insurance or PPI on loans, store cards, credit cards and mortgages. We were all being encouraged to look at our credit agreements to see if PPI was part of the contract.

2019

In 2017, the August 2019 PPI deadline was announced meaning that if you were mis-sold PPI before the summer of 2017, you only had a short time left to claim. As a result, the marketing campaign encouraged consumers to make a decision about PPI.

40% of People Have Done Just That

Since the first PPI claims were made until now, just over 40% of people entitled to make a claim for PPI compensation have done so.

That leaves 60% of customers with a claim yet to make one - are you one of them?

Not Always Easy to Spot

Looking at your credit agreement paperwork, you may find it difficult to see if you have been or are paying payment protection insurance because different lenders have different names for payment protection insurance.

Some store or credit cards, for example, called their PPI products 'card care'. Repayment protection insurance was also an oft-used name for payment protection insurance. Mortgage lenders also had a variety of names for these products.

On looking at your credit agreement documentation, if you see a payment for repayment protection insurance you may have a form of PPI on the account.

What PPI Promised…

The basic idea behind payment protection insurance was that in the event you were unable to keep up repayments on your loan or credit card due to illness and not being able to work and so on, the PPI policy should kick in, and make the repayments for you.

But not all customers needed PPI. For example, some customers already had payment protection insurance policies in place and didn't need another policy.

Some PPI policies were also limited in the cover, whilst others had a waiting time of three months or more before a claim could be made. All these limitations and instances of 'no cover' in the terms and conditions of PPI were not made obvious to the customer.

In some cases, some people were not asked or made aware that they had this type of payment protection insurance on their loan!

This mass mis-selling of payment protection insurance to customers across the UK now mean that customers are now claiming back money owed to them 'en masse'. Banks and other financial institutions have put aside billions of pounds to cover PPI compensation claims.
