Miselling of Protection Insurance

Payment Protection Insurance came about in order to provide the borrower with financial support in the event of becoming sick or unemployed while in the process of making loan payments to an institution. The rationale behind this insurance was good however it seems to have been plagued with instances of the miselling of payment protection insurance. These instances have allowed individuals to seek PPI refunds on the basis of miselling of payment protection insurance which would have been inclusive in the repayment of the loan.

Controversy Linked with Payment Protection Insurance

The onus is on the company or lending institution to enlighten the borrower on the facts surrounding PPI so as to prevent the miselling of payment protection insurance. Any restrictions which will prevent the borrower from benefiting from the insurance coverage should be brought to the borrower's attention and unnecessary pressure should not be applied in an effort to force the borrower to purchase Payment Protection Insurance. This is not a compulsory insurance that must be taken at the time of the loan. Specific care has to be taken to ensure that PPI is not sold to individuals who do not qualify for it. Other issues such as a pre-existing medical conditions can be considered as exclusions or an employed individual working less than a sixteen hour work week do not qualify for Payment Protection Insurance. A company or lending institution found in breach of any of the above mentioned items may suffer the consequences of miselling of payment protection insurance and this can result in PPI claims from borrowers.
