Claiming PPI compensation for mis sold policies has never been easier, but many people are still unaware of their rights. With an average payout of just under £3000 it is a worthwhile process, and four million people are believed to have claimed so far. The scandal has affected many people in the UK, and continues to do so. You are not alone if you are unsure how to go about making a claim – or, indeed, whether you can – so let’s have a look at things in more detail and explain your rights in simple terms.
PPI – or payment protection insurance – is designed to keep up the monthly repayments on a loan or mortgage (or any form of credit agreement) to which it is aligned, in the event the policyholder is made redundant unwillingly. The sale of PPI has been governed by strict guidelines and regulations, but an investigation found that these have been overlooked on a regular basis, hence the PPI compensation scandal.

Who Can Claim PPI Compensation?
Anybody who can prove they were mis sold a policy can claim PPI compensation, and the banks have been ordered to pay. You may have been sold a policy that was of no use – perhaps you were already retired or self employed – or, as in many cases, given a PPI policy without explanation. You should also have been given a chance to check other providers for the best deal, rather than being coerced into taking the lenders own deal. All of these are examples of mis sold PPI.
