PPI claim anyone?

on Fri Oct 06, 2017 5:08 pm
Hello again. Long time since I was last on here so I tbought I'd start with a question.
Has as anyone ever made a PPI claim themselves direct from the lender rather than through a 3rd party?

I have made several from my self employed days and dating back to about 1995 in a couple of cases. All done myself and total reclaimed to date about £40,000.

If you want any advice, let me know...

Good to hear from you again!

Thanks Hugh.
I was just wondering what I need to say to justify my claim. I was never actually sold it, it was simply added to my credit card. When I noticed it I just assumed it was compulsory. It was only later that I realised that it was a sparate product but by then the card had long since been paid off and the account closed. My favourable terms of empmoyment have meant that I have never knowlingly taken out PPI because I simpmy don't have any need for it. My employer may piss me iff from time to time but if I get sick they pay me my full wage for a minimum of 6 months and then I have critical illness cover as part if my contract. If I was ever to die my wife eould get over £200,000 as well as 50% of my pension and should I be made redundant I'd get the equivalent if well over a years take home pay. In short I've never needed or wanted it. I was just wondering how hard they fight this sort of thing?

You have a good case, I think. The fact that it was added to your payments without being sold, and due to the fact that you thought it was a condition of the loan being offered. Do you have the original loan agreement?

The Financial Ombudsman has a standard claim form you can download. In my case PPI paid for my teacher training, the Jag XF SV8 (and the trade up to the XFR) and a slice to pay some to the taxman....

Sadly not. It was 1998 and financial records have long since been shredded. I was one of those "You've been pre appoved for a credit card" letters that were common 20 years back. I simply filled in a form, sent it back and my card was mailed to me. I didn't fill out a separate agreement for PPI and ftom what I can gather from the internet if anything there will have been a "tick if you don't want PPI" box.

Just submitted my online application for a refund.

There have been recent changes - I understand that if commission rates weren't made known to you at the time of the loan, then you may be entitled to refund. Other claimants with the same products will possibly set a president in your case.

Good luck!
