PPI Help

Do you need help reclaiming PPI mis-sold on a loan, mortgage, store or credit card? We have already helped more than 40,000 customers pursue claims against their bank, building society or credit card company and have recovered in excess of £100 million. Below is a list of a list of common questions asked by our customers.

PPI Help Q1: What is PPI?
PPI stands for payment protection insurance and it is a type of cover added to financial products. It is meant to cover debt repayments if the borrower is unable to work due to illness, accident or redundancy.

PPI Help Q2: Why is PPI so controversial?
PPI is controversial because it has been frequently mis-sold. In 2006 the sale of the cover was investigated by The Financial Services Authority and The Office of Fair Trading. They discovered many lenders had failed to safe guard their customers or correctly train their staff and, as a consequence, some were handed significant fines.

PPI help Q3: How were policies mis-sold?

There were a number of different way in which PPI policies were sold. E.g:

  • The customer was told they had to have the cover.
  • The customer was told taking out the cover would improve their chance of being granted the loan.
  • The customer was sold the cover even though it was unsuitable for their needs. For example customers who were retired or in full time education were sold PPI policies. Clearly, someone who is not employed has no requirement for cover that protects them from loss of employment!
  • The customer was not made fully aware of the terms, conditions or cost of the policy.
  • The policy was added without the customer's knowledge.

PPI help Q5: How much compensation could I receive?

The level of compensation paid depends on many factors such as the age and size of the policy. Typically, a loan PPI policy costs between 13% and up to 56% of the original loan value. In addition to reclaiming all premiums paid we also request an addition 8% in interest.

PPI help Q6: How long will it take to settle my claim?

The amount of time it takes to settle a claim depends on a number of different factors including: the complexity of the case and whether we have to refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Service. In many instances, though, we are able to successfully settle claims in just 8 weeks.

PPI help Q7: I have already paid off my loan or credit card. Can I still claim?

Yes. You can make a claim even if your loan is paid off or you no longer use your account. There is also no limit to how many claims you can make.
