It has been one of the biggest banking scandals in years, and PPI is continuing to cause the banks a real headache. So far, an enormous £34.4 billion has been paid out in compensation since January 2011.
You have probably heard about PPI claims on TV and in the media, but like many, you just aren’t sure whether you had PPI, or it sounds like too much time to make a claim.
So, if you have had a credit card, store card, car finance or bought a house between 1988 - 2011 with a mortgage, it is well worth checking and now it’s very easy to do so.
Plus, not only can you claim for the PPI that you were mis-sold, you could also receive interest on top of this amount, that is why compensation payments for PPI mis-selling can potentially be THOUSANDS of Pounds and in some cases even higher.

What is PPI mis-selling?
PPI stands for Payment Protection Insurance and was usually sold by the banks with products that you need to make repayments on, like a loan, credit card or mortgage. But it could also have been included with store cards, overdrafts, car finance or home shopping accounts.
However, the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) found that PPI was often mis-sold.
You may have been mis-sold PPI for many reasons, such as being pressured into buying PPI, being promised a cheaper rate if taking PPI, or the PPI did not fit your needs.
But there are also many other reasons why you may have been mis-sold PPI.
