Everything you should know about Payment Protection Insurance
As with all financial products and insurance policies there is plenty of scope for confusion; the use of industry-specific jargon keeps consumers in the dark and makes things appear more complex than they are. Let’s have a look at the PPI scandal in simple terms.
The Origins of the PPI Scandal
The mis sold PPI scandal first came to light back in 2005 when the Financial Services Authority (FSA) launched an investigation into allegations of mis-selling in the financial sector. It was discovered that mis-selling of Payment Protection Insurance was widespread. In 2007 the authorities levied heavy fines on the guilty parties, and rewrote the regulations. In 2009 it was deemed unlawful for banks to sell single rate PPI policies, and this was followed in 2011 by a High Court ruling that agreed with the FSA, leading to the situation we have now.
PPI Provisions and Fines Explained
Having been ordered to pay back fees on mis-sold PPI policies the banks were forced to put aside great deals of money to cover the expected rush of claims. So far the collective lenders are estimated to have allocated more than £13billion to cover the costs, with the biggest contributor being the Lloyds Banking Group whose total so far is more than £5billion. Many lenders have been heavily fined for mis-selling PPI, and this includes retailers as well as lenders. The fact is that anyone who has been mis-sold PPI has a right to claim PPI refunds of all the fees on the policy, and the consumer can choose to use professionals who offer expertise in the claims world, or they can undertake the claim alone.
How Much Might you be Owed?
This depends entirely on the individual circumstances of the individual, and the length, size and type of the loan. For the record, the average payout at the time of writing is around £2,750, although there has been at least one that was in excess of £15,000.
