How Do I Claim Back PPI

You would think that there would be an easy answer to, "How do I claim back PPI?" but there really isn't a single answer that would suffice. Before trying to figure out how to file PPI claims you would need to understand a little bit about how PPI is mis sold and even what it is in the first place. After that you can go about answering your question, "How do I claim for PPI that was mis sold?"

What PPI Is and What It Isn't

When a lender tries to sell you payment protection insurance (PPI) the first thing you will be told is that it is insurance that will provide repayment cover in the event that you should be out of work due to unemployment or illness. Unfortunately, what they don't tell you is that there are very few people who ever qualify for the cover and that fewer than 15% of claims are ever honoured. In theory it is a great cover, but in reality it leaves a lot to be desired. How do I claim back PPI? The best way to claim back PPI is to understand that if you were mis sold payment protection insurance but were ineligible for cover from the start, you may qualify for a PPI reclaim of any money you paid into the cover. Even if your lender didn't know you had pre-existing medical conditions or didn't know that you were a contract, temporary worker, it is his/her responsibility to know that. The Financial Services Authority (FSA) explicitly says that it is the responsibility to fully understand the borrower's needs and only sell an insurance product that meets those needs. Any reason for being PPI mis sold or mis represented would qualify you to claim back PPI.

Finding Help Filing PPI Claims

You can't go around to fully asking yourself, "How do I claim for PPI?" because it is counterproductive.
