PPI Policies

Within the past several years it has become increasingly obvious that the mis selling of PPI has become one of the biggest scandals to ever have infiltrated the lending industry in the UK. So many lenders have been literally pushing PPI cover on potential borrowers that consumer advocate groups and government agencies have taken notice. Steps have been taken to correct the misselling of payment protection insurance but there are still serious questions over the cost of the cover.

Basic Premise of PPI

In principle, loan insurance is a good cover to have because it is supposed to make payments on a loan if the borrower is unable to make those payments because lost income due to unemployment or illness. That sounds like a very good thing, doesn't it? Unfortunately the PPI policies offered by most lenders don't work like that because of the fact that there are so many exclusions. Too many people are not eligible for cover because of pre-existing conditions that keep them from work, their age, their job status and even losing work because of such things as a back injury or mental illness. It has been said that it is a good policies that was poorly designed. Even though the basic premise behind PPI policies was meant to be good, the lack of cover and the high cost often make it very poor value for money.

Outrageous Premiums

Another sore point amongst many consumers is the high cost of PPI policies. The usual price range is between thirteen and twenty-five percent of the amount of the loan. Now add those outrageous premiums to the fact that there is relatively no cover and you will see why many borrowers just would not purchase loan protection insurance unless they were literally forced to in some way or another. Not only was PPI sometimes added to the loan without the borrower's knowledge but some lenders coerced consumers by telling them they would not qualify for the loan unless they purchased a PPI policy. The more you understand just how many flaws there are in PPI cover, the more you wonder how so many insurance policies were allowed to be written!
