“UK banks and lenders have set aside
£5.5bn for PPI claims, if you have any
kind of borrowing make sure you receive your share”
PPI or Payment Protection Insurance has been mis sold to around 20 million people in the UK by banks, lenders and insurers who have included unfair or hidden policies in loans to cash in on expensive premiums.
If you live in the UK and have a current borrowing or have paid off a loan of any kind in the last six years then there’s a very good chance you’ve been affected by mis sold PPI and are owed a refund. At the end of April the banks and lenders who sold PPI were told by the High Court that they have to pay out compensation to all the customers they mis sold PPI to. The banks then took a month to mull over the decision before they all agreed that they WOULD PAYOUT REFUNDS and set aside just over £5.5bn to do so.
This is what turned PPI claims from a few people into a full on PPI compensation scheme, open to all people with a loan.
The banks and lenders are now simply waiting for you claim to be made, they’ve collectively hired 6000 staff and rented extra office space JUST SO PPI CLAIMS CAN BE HANDLED, that’s how many claims they expect. All you have to do is pick up the phone and see if you’re eligible for a PPI refund. If you’re ready to do that, then call our team on 0800 840 7292, it’s completely free to call and claim and if you just want some more information that’s fine because there’s NO OBLIGATION WHATSOEVER.
How likely is it that you have a mis sold policy?
Over 1.5 million financial consumers in the UK have already made a PPI claim and over £4 million has been paid out as a result. When you consider that there are potentially over 20 million mis sold PPI policies and £5.5bn in a pot waiting to be claimed, you can see why your loans could be hiding a cash windfall ready to be collected.
But get this, one bank is paying out full refunds on policies PLUS 8% interest to all PPI policy holders, whether they’ve been mis sold or not, if you have or had a policy – you WILL get a refund, guaranteed.
This bank is Barclays and other lenders are soon to follow suit. All of the major high street banks have set aside cash to refund PPI policy holders:
Lloyds Banking Group, (and Halifax) put aside £3.2bn
Barclays – £1bn
The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS – Natwest) – £1bn
HSBC – £270m
Coop – £90m
They know they’ve been busted for selling over-priced, inappropriate, useless, worthless insurance to their loyal customers for years and now they’ve been caught out, they’re stumping up the cash. They wouldn’t have done it if they hadn’t been found out and brought to justice by campaigners and watchdogs, so make sure all their hard work wasn’t for nothing – get your payout from the £5.5bn or just let the bank keep it – your choice.

Some Questions And Answers – The PPI Claims FAQ
What is PPI and why has it been mis-sold?
Payment Protection Insurance or PPI is a type of insurance available when you take out a loan, it’s designed to protect you from going into arrears if you cant make a repayment for a specific set of reasons. Fundamentally it’s a great idea and one you may seriously consider if offered it, however, you may have been paying for it already without knowing.
Up to 20 million Payment Protection Policies have been mis-sold as part of loans either without the consumer knowing or without the full details being explained. If you have taken out any of the following in the last 10 years, whether you’re still repaying or not, you may be able to reclaim thousands of pounds back in compensation:
- Personal Loan
- Car Loan
- Secured Loan
- Consolidation Loan
- Credit Card
The common mis-sell of Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) is it’s inclusion in a loan agreement either on a compulsory basis or without notification, the result is you may have been paying too much for a policy you don’t even know you have.
How do I know if I’ve been mis-sold PPI?
It’s not just the concealment of insurance policies within loan agreements that’s the problem but also the sale of inappropriate policies to ill-advised consumers. Severe bad practice from Loan providers has resulted in up to 20 million consumers being mis-sold Loans, Mortgages, Credit Cards and Car Finance and here’s how to tell if you’re a victim:
Key points to consider:
- If you were self-employed, unemployed, redundant or retired when you took out the loan? If you’ve paid or been paying for insurance that provides unemployment cover and the provider knew you were not in need of it, you have been mis-sold.
- Have you had a medical problem in the past? Most policies won’t cover you for medial conditions you’ve had in the past. If this wasn’t made clear to you or were never asked about your medical history, you may have a claim.
- Has your provider already been fined for mis-selling? This is a simple way of gauging how likely it is you have a claim. Many providers have already paid out on claims and been fined for mis-selling.
- Were you sold a ‘single premium’ loan policy? This type of policy puts a lump sum on your loan amount at the beginning of the repayment term to cover the insurance. If you have had or do have one of these you may have a strong reclaim opportunity.
- Were you given full details of the insurance? This really covers the whole problem with mis-sold PPI. As a responsible lender, your loan provider should have told you about the full T’s & C’ of your loan insurance policy, if they didn’t, you have been mis-sold.
- Have you borrowed any of these from any of these lenders:
|Alliance & Leicester||£7million|
|HFC Bank (owned by HSBC)||£1,085,000|
|GE Capital Bank||£610,000|
|Redcats (Brands) Ltd||£270,000|
|Capital One Bank||£175,000|
|Regency Mortgage Corp||£56,000|
|Home & County Mortgages||£52,500|
|Capital Mortgage Connections||£17,500|
If ‘yes’ then there’s a strong chance that you have a PPI policy as all of these lenders have been fined by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) for mis selling PPI.
Can I make a PPI claim if I have an IVA?
YES. Loans, credit cards and other borrowings that you’re repaying through an IVA may have PPI policies attached and you can still receive a refund if they’ve been mis-sold.
How long does a payout take?
Every PPI reclaim case is different and payout times will vary depending on when you took out the borrowing, what paperwork you have, how quickly the lender or insurance provider replies. Our team deals with our end of the case as quickly and efficiently as possible and have won payouts in as little as 3 weeks but yours could take 3 months or longer, so be prepared for a wait.
How much will I get?
This varies depending on how many policies you have, how much you borrowed and how much the insurance provider charged you for the worthless cover. So far, banks have refunded mis sold PPI victims to the tune of just over £7 billion. The consumer watchdog, Which? estimate that around 2 million policies have been mis sold and the average payout is currently around £2,750. Of course, yours could be less, but it could also be more. The only way to find out, is to make a claim.
Can I make a PPI claim against a policy that has expired?
YES, whether you cancelled a policy or finished paying back the loan, you can still make a claim.
Can I make a refund claim against a PPI policy which I have actually used?
YES, even if you’ve made a successful insurance claim through the policy, you can still make a PPI refund claim.
How far back can I claim?
If you have taken out a Mortgage, Loan, Credit Card or Car Finance in the last 10 years, there’s a good chance you’ve been mis-sold PPI, even if you’ve re-mortgaged, paid the debt off or defaulted. The strength of your claim depends on a number of factors and is determined by your own individual circumstances.
How do I know if I’ve been paying for Payment Protection Insurance?
Many Banks and Building Societies only provide quotes based on the ‘with insurance’ figure and fail to mention that part of the cost is for PPI. With sales patters like “the fully protected loan will cost…” it’s no wonder that you may have signed up for a PPI policy that you were completely unaware of.
The first step towards finding out if you have been mis-sold PPI is taking a look at your original loan agreement, if you have PPI it should be shown in the breakdown of payments section. If you don’t have your agreement or you’re unsure about what it says, you can call us on Freephone 0800 840 7292 and speak to a one of our friendly advisors about getting your completely FREE – NO OBLIGATION assessment.
I was told I had to take out Payment Protection Insurance to get the loan – was I mis-sold?
If you’ve applied for a Mortgage, Loan, Credit card or Car Finance and been told by the provider that you must also have an insurance policy from them; then you could have a claim. By subscribing to the Banking Code your lender has agreed not to insist upon forcing consumers to take insurance in order to get the loan or card and is therefore breaching regulations.
Did I need unemployment cover when I took out Payment Protection Insurance?
A major selling point of PPI (if it’s sold properly) is the unemployment cover it provides should you find yourself out of work with payments to make. But this is only suitable if you were working at the time you took the policy out; if instead you were any of the following then it’s possible you’ve been mis-sold PPI:
- Worked under 16 hours per week
- Full time Student
- Stay at home parent
My lender says I have already paid for my PPI and won’t give me a refund.
This is a common complaint from consumers who signed up to a ‘Single premium’ or ‘Front Loaded’ Payment Protection Insurance (PPI). With these policies, all of the interest for the PPI is calculated and added to the loan amount as a lump sum at the beginning of the term.
Under the regulations set out in the Banking Code, your loan provider has a duty to provide you with the best product for your situation, based on your best interests. If you’ve been sold a Single Premium PPI as part of a loan and weren’t made aware of the alternative ‘pay monthly’ insurance options, you can claim a refund.
There is insurance on my loan but it’s not called PPI, is it the same thing?
Although often referred to by the media as Payment Protection Insurance or PPI; loan insurance is also known by a number of different names. These include:
- Loan Protection Insurance (LPI)
- Accident Sickness unemployment (ASU)
- Personal Loan Protection (PLP)
“The most important thing is that whoever represents you is working in your best interests”
