Claim Back Loan Insurance

Was I Mis Sold PPI

Payment protection insurance (PPIO), also commonly known as loan protection insurance, is often touted as a type of cover that will provide protection for borrowers who are unable to make repayments due to unemployment. However, for most policyholders PPI does exactly the contrary, consuming funds unnecessarily by increasing monthly repayments and/or dramatically increasing the overall loan amount. Despite the fact that payment protection insurance (PPI) has an overall a claims ratio of about 20%, and the second-lowest claims ratio next to that is 55% (for household insurance). The claims ratio depicts what percentage of policyholders' investments is awarded by an insurance company each year in claims. In other words, for every pound spent by a PPI policy holder, only £.20 is paid out in loan insurance claims.

Devising a Plan of Action Before Reclaiming PPI

Instead of falling victim to financial difficulties and defaulting on your loan, mortgage, or credit card payments, consider the advantages of filing a loan insurance claim against your lender. Most of our clients receive full compensation within eight weeks, which is similar to the waiting period for receiving PPI policy benefits. Nonetheless, with the amount of PPI refunds being honoured in the UK annually it is becoming a lot less time consuming to successfully complete a PPI claim. The money received through a PPI claim can give you the financial help needed to avoid a loan default and keep your credit score intact.

Was I Mis Sold PPI that Cannot Be Reclaimed?

Our PPI specialists have the knowledge and expertise needed to facilitate a loan claim back with minimal input from the client. To proceed in the claims process fill out a quick claim form and you'll receive a pack in the post that will explain how to proceed in claiming back a portion of the loan that was allocated to a PPI policy. So long as it can be proven or sufficiently suspected that the loan protection insurance coverage was mis-sold, either through misinformation or misleading salesmanship, you may be successful in claiming back PPI. A lot of borrowers who are already having difficulties financially and are in desperate need of assistance are so concerned about the possibility of being denied for a loan that they're almost coerced into paying more for a loan insurance policy.

Was I Mis Sold PPI like Millions of other UK Borrowers?

About thirty percent of the cases sent to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) each year are related to customers reclaiming PPI on credit cards or loans. About two thirds of the incidents looked at pertained to various lending products, and another forty percent were associated with credit cards and mortgages. While PPI policies may add up to 15 - 50% percent of the original loan amount, as few as fifteen percent of clients obtain benefits. More than 31,000 claims were filed against lenders in the last quarter of 2009, and some analysts expect that at least 80,000 consumers may try to reclaim PPI payments in 2011.
