Aspects of a Payment Protection Calculator
Most people who have been mis-sold payment protection insurance are keen to know
what refund they may be entitled to. Actually, that is a difficult question to answer without knowing some pertinent information about the loan that has mis sold PPI attached to it. If this information is on hand it is possible to use an online payment protection calculator to estimate how much you may be able claim back. This information includes the amount of the actual loan, the percentage of that amount you are being charged for PPI and the length of time you have been paying on the loan.
The Total PPI Premium Needs to Be Known
A payment protection calculator will first assume that your cover was added as a total premium to the cost of the loan. So if your loan was for £150,000 as might be the case with a mortgage loan, the amount of the total loan with the cost of PPI cover could be as much as £225,000. That's the sum total of the amount being borrowed plus a fifty percent charge for PPI.
What is the Insurance Rate Being Charged?
In the above example, the insurance rate was at 50% of the loan amount but that percentage varies. PPI costs anywhere from 13%-56% of the loan amount so you would need to know that information in order for the payment protection calculator to estimate payment protection refunds due.
How Many Years Have You Paid On Your Loan?
Finally, it is important to know the length of time you have been making payments on the loan. Some people have paid off their loan over a five year period while others are in the eighth or ninth year of a thirty year mortgage loan. The payment protection calculator will use this information to calculate how much you have paid, including interest on interest that you have also paid!
