How to Claim Back Payment Protection on Your Credit Card

Many card issuers have begun automatically charging cardholders for payment protection insurance (PPI) policies, under the premise that the cardholder will be able to receive repayment assistance if they're unable to make repayments due to unemployment or sudden illness. However, the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) and the Financial Ombudsman Service have begun releasing yearly reports that catalog the number of complaints filed in relation to PPI policies. Their reports indicate that there are approximately 50,000 PPI refunds processed in the UK annually. If you'd like to learn how to claim back payment protection on your credit card, consider the following information.

How to Claim Back Payment Protection on Your Credit Card - Reasons to File a PPI Claim

In order to understand how to claim back payment protection on your credit card you need to know the various grounds for PPI reclaim. According to the Financial Services Authority (FSA), lenders are required to recommend PPI policies that are suitable for the needs of the borrower, otherwise they may be held liable for providing a full PPI refund if the borrower decides to file a payment protection claim against them. If the lender convinced you that the policy was mandatory for loan approval or could affect the amount of the loan, or if they failed to mention the policy at all, you are entitled to a full PPI refund. The first step in learning how to claim back payment protection on your credit card is recognising PPI mis-selling so that you can issue a complaint with the help of Belmont Thornton.

How Much Can You Reclaim in Credit Card PPI Payments?

Cardholders usually pay for a PPI policy via monthly charges that are equal to about 2 to 3% of the current account balance. Thus, an individual that maintains a card balance of approximately £500 each month may be required to pay £10 to £20 monthly (£120 to £240 annually) in PPI fees. While the exact amount that can be reclaimed depends on how long you've been making repayments on the card, as well as the specific terms of your policy, you should be able to obtain full compensation by utilising the services of a professional PPI claim company that knows how to claim back payment protection on your credit card.
