PPI Reclaiming Made Easy If you’ve taken out a loan, mortgage or credit card in the last six years, you may be able to reclaim £1,000s. When taking out a loan, credit card or mortgage, it's likely you would have been offered payment protection insurance (PPI) with it. This is a form of insurance designed to cover your repayments in the event of an accident, sickness or unemployment. Payment protection insurance (PPI) itself isn't a bad product. But it's been widely mis-sold, leaving many paying hundreds for potentially worthless cover. If this applies to you, you may be able to reclaim what you've paid. Generally, the amount you pay for loan PPI is about 15% of your balance but it could be up to 30%. It doesn't sound much, but it quickly mounts up. For example, on a £5,000 loan
you'd pay £750 for insurance. On a mortgage, the cost of PPI often runs into thousands. You may have been told insurance was compulsory – it isn't, and that alone counts as mis-selling. Plus, the self-employed, unemployed, retired, those with pre-existing conditions, or who are covered elsewhere, have all commonly been sold unnecessary policies. Reclaiming PPI is something you can quite easily do yourself. There are some great resources of information available online to help you through the process. But, if that feels like too much hassle, why not let Aegis Law do the hard work for you? One phone call is all it takes.
