So, what is PPI? Before we move on to how you-you could make a PPI claim, let us at the very onset try to gauge what PPI actually is. PPI that actually means Payment Protection Insurance is sold when you take a loan, a mortgage or a credit card etc. In case you were not able to pay your loans or other payments covered under PPI, the claim would compensate all the payments for a stipulated period of time such that you are good to go. If you feel that you had a PPI but did not claim it, you could do so now depending on the plan under which you were covered. So, whether it was a loan repayment or a card repayment, along with what it was sold, a PPI claim would sort it out for you.
So, as we have learned before, you would mostly make a PPI claim when you were incapacitated due to various reasons. In this section, we shall look as to how you could claim your existing PPI.
First and foremost, you must be sure of the organisation or the company that would help you claiming it because it took care of your claims. The next thing to do would be to look for all the required pieces of paper, important documents etc. that would prove that your PPI claim is genuine so as to warrant your claims too at the very same time. These documents should also be proof enough of the fact that you were and are spying from time to time and have not been a defaulter in any way. The next thing to do would be to write to the loan or credit card provider attaching all the relevant documents. The last resort if there is absolutely no answer from the provider would be to file a complaint to the branch that looks after PPI claims. If you have been mis-sold to you on account of avoiding reasons, you will be let known of.
The process through which you make a PPI claim is not arduous a task at all if you clearly follow the above-mentioned steps. The most important thing to keep in mind would be to recover the documents, keep copies of them handy and wait for a resolution after you have written to the loan or mortgage provider. Once you go about these steps, you will find it easy to make the claim and at the same time understand whether the PPI was mis-sold to you.
