So Many Exclusions - So Few Covers

Many consumers were told that they would be able to take advantage of the benefits and loan payments would be made if they could not make payments due to loss of work or illness. In the broad sense this is true but in reality there are so many exclusions attached to the cover that many common illnesses or reasons for being out of work were not actually covered.

Specific Exclusions - A Case in Point

Mis sold loan protection insurance was promised to consumers who had pre-existing medical conditions and when they tried to make the claim were denied because of that pre-existing condition. Seniors over the age of 65, temporary employees, those who are self-employed and even individuals who were unemployed at the time of taking out a loan were mis sold loan protection. These are all exclusions and blatant examples of just how loan insurance loan protection insurance was mis sold.
