What is PPI - Payment Protection Insurance?
If you have borrowed money on a loan, credit card or mortgage – you may have been sold or been forced to take out something that is called Payment Protection Insurance (PPI). Payment Protection Insurance is designed to protect the borrowers’ ability to maintain their repayments in the event that they get sick, or unable to work through an accident or unemployment.
If you have taken a loan, credit card or any other finance in the last 20 years with payment protection insurance, you could be eligible to claim this money back. In some cases, PPI was unnecessary, unsuitable and was mis sold as the policy would have offered little assistance for you. Although this information should have been obtained from you at the outset some of the lenders made a sale regardless of making sure the policy was suitable to yourself. This means if you tried to make a claim, the insurance may not have covered your needs.
Of course insurance can prove very important and in some instances benefited the consumer. However there were some occasions when the banks didn't do the necessary checks at the outset to make sure the policy was suitable. This meant when you came to make a claim, the insurance may not have have covered you. We can assess your circumstances to see if this was you!
