How Successful are Plevin PPI Claims?

PPI Plevin success rates

In recent years, the rules for Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) claims have changed due to the Plevin ruling. This ruling has introduced a new dimension to PPI claims, focusing on the issue of undisclosed high commissions. As individuals across the UK consider pursuing Plevin claims, a common question arises: Is the process complex, and more importantly, is it worth the effort? This article looks at the success rates of Plevin PPI claims, the effort involved in making these claims, and any relevant data surrounding their success in the UK.

Understanding Plevin PPI Claims

A Plevin PPI claim arises from a Supreme Court ruling in the case of Plevin v Paragon Personal Finance Ltd. This ruling highlighted the issue of excessive commission charges in PPI policies that were not disclosed to the consumer. According to the ruling, if over 50% of your PPI policy’s cost was commissioned and this was not disclosed to you, you are entitled to claim back the excess above this 50% threshold. This opened a new route for claims post the 2019 PPI claim deadline.

The Complexity of the Process

The process of making a Plevin PPI claim is relatively straightforward, especially compared to the traditional PPI claims that preceded it. It primarily involves identifying whether your PPI policy had a high level of commission and if this fact was undisclosed. The complexity can vary depending on the availability of your policy details and the responsiveness of the lender.

Success Rate and Effort Involved

Likelihood of Success

The success of a Plevin claim largely hinges on the specifics of the policy in question. If clear evidence shows that the commission was above the 50% mark and undisclosed, the likelihood of a successful claim is high. However, each case is unique, and success can vary.

Effort Required

The effort required in pursuing a Plevin PPI claim involves gathering all relevant documentation, such as the PPI policy details and any records of payments. Contacting the lender or financial institution to obtain this information is typically the first step. If the lender is no longer in operation, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) may be a recourse.

You also have the option of speaking to an expert such as Your Claim Matters who have many years of experience of financial mis-selling claims.

Data on Plevin Claims

As of now, there are no specific, publicly available datasets that detail the number of successful Plevin claims or the total compensation awarded in the UK. However, it’s worth noting that since the introduction of the Plevin ruling, there has been a significant number of consumers who have pursued these claims, with many reporting successful outcomes.

Plevin PPI claims offer an important option for people who were charged high commissions on their PPI policies without knowing it.
