PPI ‘PLEVIN’ CLAIMS
If your PPI mis-selling claim was previously rejected, but you received only a partial ‘Plevin’ payout, you can demand your money back even though the FCA deadline has passed.
PPI TAX REFUND CLAIMS
If you received a PPI refund after 6 April 2016, it is likely you paid too much tax on your refund, as the banks did not investigate your tax position before automatically deducting 20% from your refund.

ARE YOU OWED AN EXTRA £1,612* FROM PLEVIN PPI?
If your mis-selling PPI claim was previously rejected, but you received a partial so-called ‘Plevin’ payout, you can now demand your full money back regardless of whether or not PPI was appropriate for you.
Millions of consumers are now entitled to a second wave of lucrative PPI claims after a series of Court rulings found that the product was “unfair”.
UK banks sold payment protection policies alongside loans, mortgages, and credit cards to cover repayments if the borrower was unable to due to illness, disability or redundancy. However, the banks routinely mis-sold this product to people who would not have been eligible to make a claim under the policy, were not aware they were buying it or already had cover. The banks have already paid out £50bn in compensation for mis-sold PPI, making it the largest consumer redress amount in history.
It is less well known that banks selling PPI would also receive huge commissions from insurers, sometimes accounting for more than 95% of the cost of the policy. The banks never disclosed these commissions to their customers. The judges in the recent case of Plevin v Paragon at the Supreme Court said that if the banks had informed their customers of the high level of these commissions, it is likely that many customers would not have bought the policy. The Court ruled that where a lender or other provider hid large commissions from a consumer, this created an unfair relationship between the lender and the consumer. Consequently, these consumers are entitled to a refund of the full amount of commission paid plus 8% compensatory interest.

This decision in the Supreme Court has fundamentally altered PPI claims in the UK. The judgement in Plevin vs Paragon Personal Finance (2014) allows customers to bring an unfair relationship claim based on non-disclosure of commissions. Other recent cases have upheld this judgement and previously rejected PPI cases can now be re-opened on this fresh ground of complaint.
The FCA has issued rules and guidance in handling complaints in light of Plevin, which state that customers are automatically entitled to redress for commission above 50%. However, we are able to recover the remaining commission over the 50% tipping point to provide customers with a significant increase in their potential redress.

High Commission Levels
If your provider, broker or finance company were earning more than a 50% commission on your PPI policy sale?
If you were unaware of the commission being paid on your policy at the time of purchase, even if you were aware of the PPI itself?
You might be eligible for compensation if any of the below applies to you, even if you have already claimed PPI or had a PPI claim dismissed:
If you recognise either of these scenarios, then you might have a similar case to Susan Plevin and could be eligible to make a claim.
