PPI stands for Payment Protection Insurance - a product designed to provide financial protection for people who are unable to make their monthly repayments on their loans, credit cards or mortgages. This may be due to unemployment, illness or injury.
While this appears to be a useful product, it is estimated that almost three-quarters of the adult UK population has been mis-sold PPI at some point over the past 10+ years, meaning they have needlessly or unwittingly paid higher monthly premiums. This has led to a high volume of PPI claims, many of which have been successful, and you could be next in line with the assistance of Simple Financial Solutions.
Have you been mis-sold PPI?
There are many ways in which PPI was mis-sold and it would have normally taken place when you first took out your mortgage, loan or credit card either online, face-to-face or over the telephone. There have been a significant number of cases whereby during purchases made face-to-face and over the phone, borrowers have often been incorrectly told that PPI is compulsory or that they are eligible (when they have not been, i.e. the self-employed and over 65s).
Policies bought online may have involved a PPI opt-out using a tick box; this comes under the category of ‘mis-selling’ and was abolished in June 2007 in favour of an opt-in system. Therefore if your purchase was before this date there is a good chance that you will be eligible for a refund.
