What is Payment Protection Insurance (PPI)?
Payment protection insurance or is more frequently referred to as PPI, is an insurance product designed to cover any outstanding loans or payments such as mortgages, credit cards or home loans. PPI was generally sold as an add-on product to protect the consumer from circumstances such as unemployment and accidents, which may have prevented them from servicing the debt.
The Controversy surrounding PPI or Payment Protection Insurance
Firstly the statistics have shown that PPI has one of the highest number of rejected claims. This was largely due to the manner in which the products were sold to the customer. First of all the nature of the product was an add-on product. Many consumers were unaware that they had even purchased a Payment Protection Insurance (PPI).
This has why PPI has caused so much controversy with customers accusing the lenders that their policies were mis-sold to them? The FSA or Financial Services Authority, Citizens Advice Bureau and the Office of Fair Trading were just some of the organisations that raised concerns about the manner in which the policies were sold and encouraging consumers to make official complaints.
A detailed review of how Payment Protection Policies were sold unearthed quite surprising techniques employed by some unscrupulous lenders to trick or force customers into taking out payment protection insurance. Some of these included:
Selling insurance to candidates that did not qualify for the insurance, such anybody who was unemployed or retired. Therefore no reason to recover loss of earnings.
Terms and Conditions of PPI not fully disclosed to consumers such as exemptions and breakdowns.
Pressurised sales techniques
Misleading borrowers by implying that the loan would not be accepted without taking out PPI or that they stood a better chance if they did.
Once the loans were completed PPI was added without notifying the customer. Once again as the customer was unaware the PPI policy existed they were unable to make a PPI claim
Missold PPI Comes Back To Haunt Banks In UK
The mis-sold PPI scandal raised its head in 2006 when in the first complaint was filed by the Citizens Advice Bureau. Since then, hundreds of thousands of individuals have stepped up and accused banks and financial institutions of mis-selling PPI policies. The widespread nature of mis-selling compelled the Office of Fair Trading and the Financial Services Authority to carry out independent investigations into the manner in which these policies were sold. Since then, thousands of individuals have filed claims all over the United Kingdom. Till date, lenders have set aside billions of pounds to settle such cases.
Analysis of statistics relating 2011 reveals that payment protection insurance was the primary reason why people approached banks with complaints. The Royal Bank of Scotland received a large number of complaints in 2011 and 47% of these complaints were relating to payment protection insurance policies. Close to one third of the total number of complaints received by the NatWest bank were related to missold PPI. Not surprisingly, RBS ended up spending £850 million settling such cases in 2011. Have you obtained a loan in the past 10 years? Have you finalized a similar financial transaction recently? If yes, then you should take a look at the statement to determine whether the cost of payment protection insurance has been added without your consent. You too may be eligible for compensation on account of mis-selling of PPI.
While PPI is designed to help borrowers continue loan repayments in the event of loss of job or other financial complications, banks missold these policies to hundreds of thousands of ineligible individuals. If you are such a victim, then you too can recover the money that you paid on the PPI policy. You can expect to recover at least £3,000 if your claim is successful. Banks and financial institutions have set aside billions of pounds towards compensation and there are no signs of a number of new cases easing up as on date. Data provided by the FOS indicates that 285,000 new cases were filed this year as compared to the previous year where 259,000 new cases were filed.
