Loan Protection Scheme

Loan protection insurance, also referred to as payment protection insurance (PPI), is supposed to provide protection for consumers who are unable to make repayments on a loan, credit card, or mortgage. However, since 2006 several financial authorities in the UK have revealed the widespread nature of PPI mis-selling, which is driven primarily by greed and the desperation of borrowers that are willing to sign loan agreements without thoroughly reviewing or questioning the fine print related to attached insurance policies. Even when many borrowers do question their lender about the necessity or purpose of a PPI policy, most lenders will simply state that is mandatory or somehow beneficial for loan approval, and that it could protect their credit score in times of financial distress. However, given the fact that 95% of PPI policies sold in 2007 were found to be mis-sold by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), it would seem that the term "protection" should be removed from the name of this type of insurance.

The Dynamics of a Loan Protection Scheme

While the Financial Services Authority (FSA) has openly criticised insurance companies that specialise in loan insurance for not honouring a decent amount of policy claims, many lenders and financial institutions that forcefully sell policy using misleading information have already been fined millions of pounds in cases that have received national attention. Given the high rate of honoured PPI refunds during the last couple years as a result of increased exposure by several financial authorities, every client has an excellent chance of receiving complete compensation during 2011.

Who Benefits in a Loan Protection Scheme?

Each year the lenders, brokers, financial institutions, and credit card companies cooperate with insurance companies that offer PPI policies to generate billions of dollars in policy premiums. While these colleges are supposed to provide protection for consumers that are having difficulty making repayments, a very small percentage will actually receive policy benefits, with more than 85% being denied repayment assistance due to coverage ineligibility. Ultimately, the lender that performs the task of convincing the borrower that a PPI policy business series stands to gain the most from a loan protection scheme, as they not only receive a commission for facilitating the sale of the policy, but also increase the amount of interest earned by heightening monthly repayments.

How to Report and Receive Compensation from a Loan Protection Scheme

The fastest, easiest, and most convenient way to report a loan protection scheme and receive full compensation is to contact Belmont Thornton by filling out a quick claim form with your basic contact information. By doing this you'll be opting to receive a free claims act in the post that will describe the process of reclaiming funds spent on loan protection insurance. If all goes well, the entire reclaim process should take no longer than 4 to 8 weeks, which is a comparable amount of time to how long it takes for less than 15% of PPI policyholders to receive repayment assistance.
