Overdraft Payment Protection Insurance

Overdraft protection insurance isn't always viewed in the same light as payment protection insurance but it is an insurance product just like PPI is but it doesn't work in exactly the same way. Even so, there are some similarities between mis sold PPI and mis sold overdraft payment protection insurance. Both types of insurance can ensure payments, of a different kind of course, so that your account doesn't fall behind.

The Purpose of Overdraft Payment Protection Insurance

When an account holder has overdraft payment protection insurance there is some amount of comfort in knowing that cheques will be honoured if there is not quite enough in the account to cover the cheque. Honest mistakes happen to good people and there will be times when cheques are written with insufficient funds in the account. Overdraft payment protection kicks in and covers the cheques so that the payee is paid and the account holder doesn't accrue an insufficient funds penalty which can be pretty stiff with some banks.

The Difference between Overdraft Payment Protection and PPI

Payment protection insurance, just like overdraft protection, is intended to make a payment if the funds aren't forthcoming. On the one hand, PPI makes a payment so that a loan doesn't go into default. On the other hand, overdraft payment protection insurance pays a person so that the account stays in good standing. They both cover payments when funds aren't available but there is usually one main way in which overdraft payment protection is mis sold but mis sold payment protection can come about in a great number of ways. The usual way in which overdraft payment protection is mis sold is by not giving the account holder the option to purchase it. However, similar to PPI, once it is mis sold the account holder has the right to file for a refund on mis sold overdraft payment protection insurance.

So Many Mis Sold Payment Protection Policies!

It appears as though virtually every aspect of the financial industry has fallen to the PPI scandal even though the lending industry has been embroiled in controversy. There doesn't seem to be the smallest corner of the entire industry that hasn't been affected in some way. Even so, the PPI claims company can help consumers get back in touch with their finances by helping them to reclaim mis sold insurance products. As a matter of fact, if you have been mis sold PPI then chances are good you may even have been mis sold overdraft insurance, especially if your checking account is in the same bank where you took out a loan!

Belmont Thornton has a claims team on hand to help you discover whether or not you have been mis sold PPI and if so, how many policies have been mis sold. If you choose to file your claims then no fee will be assessed until each claim is Won.*
