How Do I Know If I Am Paying PPI

If anyone had asked you in previous years, "How do I know if I am paying PPI?" you would have either asked them to explain what PPI is or thought they were totally insane not to know if they were paying a bill! In fact, there are still UK consumers out there who don't know that they have been paying into PPI because of the crafty way in which lenders are 'slipping' it in alongside loans. These are the worst cases and the ones in which it is most difficult to give the answer they want to hear.

A Few PPI Facts

Before trying to discover the answer to "How do I know if I am paying PPI?" it might be wise to understand a few basic facts about mis sold PPI. First of all, anyone who has been mis sold PPI, with or without their knowledge is entitled to file payment protection insurance claims to try to recover any money they paid into the insurance policy. Secondly, at least 60% of those claiming refunds will be denied by their lenders and forced to file a claim with the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).

Forms to Be Filed

If you find that you have indeed been paying for this cover after asking, "How do I know if I am paying PPI?" then your only recourse is to file a claim if you are looking to get your money back. There are forms to fill out that must be submitted to the lender and if you are denied, as so many consumers are, there will be more forms to complete in order to file an appeal with the FOS.

Third Party Help in Filing

One of the ways in which consumers have found to seek payment protection refunds is to utilise the services of a PPI claims company such as Belmont Thornton. In fact, government even espouses using third party claims companies such as Belmont Thornton simply because of the ease in which consumers can file claims that could otherwise be overwhelming.
