What Is PPI Insurance
Unless you have been out of the country for any length of time, you must have heard the news in regards to the way lenders in the UK have been blatantly mis selling PPI alongside loans of all types. Although you may not have been mis sold loan protection insurance, you surely must be aware of what it is. However, for those consumers who are taking out a loan, perhaps for the first time in their lives, they might very well be questioning, just is PPI insurance?
What Is PPI Insurance Good For?
Since we all know that very few people can draw benefits from PPI we might be tempted to ask "What is PPI insurance good for?" Actually, the underlying concept is a good one except there are so many conditions and exclusions that very few of us would ever be able to call on the benefits. It is because of this that there are so many claims against mis sold PPI. If the lender knowingly sold you an insurance policy that you weren't eligible for then, yes it is mis sold and you have every right to file a claim for a refund of premiums and any interest paid to date. If you are not familiar with the claims process, it may be in your best interest to hire a professional claims management company to act on your behalf.
What Is PPI Claims Management?
A PPI claims management company is simply a third party representative that can act on your behalf with the lender that mis sold loan insurance as well as with any other interested party named in the claim. What is PPI claims management? It is simply the name for a company that has been set up to file claims for consumers who contract their services. They are trained negotiators and have experience dealing with lenders whilst representing claimants to win back mis sold PPI. As well, if the lender should deny the claim, a PPI claims management company can take the claim through to appeal with the Financial Ombudsman Service. Again, what is claims management? They are the professionals who represent your best interests to help you get back money you shouldn't have been asked to spend on an insurance cover that will do you little good.
