In 2005 the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) lodged a super complaint against the PPI industry with the Office of Fair Trading and the Financial Services Authority. In response, the OFT, FSA and even the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) released multiple reports in the following years the revealed the extent and nature of PPI mis-selling in the United Kingdom. This negative attention resulted in tens of thousands of payment protection insurance claims being filed against lenders, brokers, financial institutions, and credit card companies that mis-sold payment protection insurance policies.
Loan Claims That Are Denied Due to Ineligibility
Borrowers are in a position to file loan claims that are related to payment protection refunds if their lender did not completely discuss the policy eligibility terms and exclusions for the PPI policy, or didn't adequately alert you of the policy premium. Though repayment assistance scenarios that are eligible for coverage can vary depending on the policy fine print, the majority of policyholders applicants will have their PPI claims denied caused by alleged coverage ineligibility.
Loan Claims That Are Caused by PPI Mis-Selling
To put the cost of a PPI policy into perspective - a £5,000 personal loan can carry a PPI policy that costs as much as £2,500. Being able to reclaim this amount within a matter of eight weeks could provide considerable repayment assistance for borrowers that are successful in claiming PPI insurance back. When the claims ratio of PPI policies is compared to that of other types of insurance (motor insurance has a claim ratio of 74%) it is not surprising that the FSA has been investigating and scrutinizing these policies for the past six years. The cost of a PPI policy can be as much as 13% to 56% (and sometimes even more!) of the total loan amount. In addition, the claims ratio for PPI policies is only 20%, meaning that for every pound spent on a PPI premium, payment protection insurance companies pay out only £0.20!
