Reclaim Your PPI

Payment protection insurance is a type of insurance that stops a financial catastrophe from happening by insuring payments will be made on the financial service in which the policyholder wants protection over. These financial services being insured with PPI are credit cards, bank loans, mortgages, and car payments. Payment protection pays the monthly installment of the financial service in case the policyholder may become unemployed due to ill health or losing one's job. The problem however with this is that many lenders mis-sold the PPI policies and of course on top of that, PPI never seems to cover the people who need it most!

What Mis-Selling PPI All About?

Mis-selling is a term that refers to the process of selling a product or a service in some way that is either unethical and/or illegal. It is the manner in which the product/service is sold that is in question here. In this case, Lenders were miss selling PPI policies in order to increase the money earned per client. Considering that most payment protection insurance policies can increase the amount to be repaid on a loan by almost 60% it is clear to see why lenders wanted to sell policies to everyone they could. These lenders were not concerned whether or not the customers received unnecessary bank charges it was all in the name of profit. With the massive amount of borrowers now reclaiming PPI, lenders are starting to feel the pinch and most financial institutions are reporting losses.

What Qualifies Someone to Reclaim PPI

In order to reclaim your PPI you must able to prove that you were mis-sold payment protection insurance. Ways in which to prove you are mis-sold payment protection include if you have proof that a lender pressured you into obtaining payment protection insurance coverage or did not advise you as to how much payment insurance could cost. Other ways in which you can prove you are mis-sold could be if you were told that getting payment insurance was the only way you could get the financial service you desired or if you were not even told about the payment protection policies at all.

Now That You Have That Proof

After you have sufficient evidence to set about reclaiming PPI the first step is to make a claim against the lender. Most customers are confused by this because they feel as though they were paying for payment protection and that they were wronged because lenders made policies seem like something they weren't. Many times it was simply a scam because PPI was sold to people who did not qualify for services. When filing a claim against the lender you will be denied around 85% of the time. If you are in that majority that have been denied then you must file a reclaim your PPI to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) who then approves as many as 90% of those appeals they review.
