Customers warned to avoid PPI rip-offs

Consumer journalist Neil Faulkner of has warned customers of the high cost of payment protection insurance (PPI) policies.

Having conducted research into PPI, he found that some policies offered a "staggeringly bad" claims ratio, which reflects how much of the money paid in premiums is paid out in claims.

PPI scored lowest, with a claims ratio of just 19 per cent, compared to life insurance which was found to have a claims ratio of 160 per cent.

So, for every pound paid in premiums on PPI, just 19 pence is paid out following claims, the website's research found.

PPI policies have also come in for criticism for mis-selling, with some policies failing to provide proper coverage to those purchasing them.

Last month, the Independent covered the story of an elderly man who was mis-sold PPI, who was not covered by the policy he was sold and faced difficulty in reclaiming the interest on his PPI payments.
