Have you taken out a loan, mortgage or credit card with Barclays?
If you have taken out any of the three then it’s also possible you took out payment protection insurance to ensure you could make your payments if you were ever to come out of work through accident, sickness or unemployment.
But it’s also possible that the insurance was mis-sold to you if you didn’t want it, need it or could not have benefitted from it because of an exclusion clause. Read on to find out more about Barclays PPI Claims.
In the scandal which has grown up surrounding the mis-selling of PPI, Barclays is one of the most complained about banks in the UK. So far, it has set aside more than £9.3 billion in total to pay compensation for successful PPI claims.
The industry as a whole has already paid more than £29.2bn back to consumers since 2011 and some financial commentators believe the final total bill could go even higher.
Barclays, along with Royal Bank of Scotland, were also involved in the LIBOR rate rigging scandal of 2012 and were fined a total of £290 million by the US Department of Justice, the Commodity Futures Trade Commission and the UK’s Financial Services Authority.
How was PPI mis-sold?
There are a number of ways in which your Barclays PPI policy may have been mis-sold to you, including:
- Did Barclays tell you the policy was optional and that you didn’t have to take it?
- Were the costs of the policy explained to you as a separate item?
- Did Barclays warn you that your employment status might affect your right to claim on the policy?
- Did Barclays make to you aware that if you received full sick pay from your employer you did not need the policy?
- Did Barclays explain the exclusion clauses in the policy like not being able to claim if you had a pre-existing medical condition?
If the answer to any of these questions is no then you may have possibly mis-sold your policy and could make a claim to get back any money that’s rightfully yours.
