If you think you’ve been mis-sold PPI (payment protection insurance), you should get your claim in by August 2019. That’s the deadline now in place for final claims. But why wait when you can quickly check any outstanding PPI today for free!
Q. Why is a deadline being proposed?
A. The financial regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), says that a deadline for payment protection insurance mis-selling claims is being introduced so that there is ‘finality and certainty’ for the industry (especially banks).
It also said, oddly, in my opinion, that it may encourage people to complain directly to banks rather than using claims management companies and that it may improve the efficiency of PPI complaints handling. I don’t follow the logic for this at all.
It first mentioned this idea almost a year ago and is now responding after the feedback it received.
Based on what the FCA has said today, the deadline is very likely to go ahead, although it’s not definite. Consumers, consumer groups and banks have until October 11th to respond to the latest plans. You can give feedback using anonline form from the FCA.
Q. When would the deadline be?
A. While at the time of the statement there was a little media coverage regarding the claim being enforced as this wasn’t set in stone the however the regulator has recently clarified it’s stance. The regulator has now set the PPI complaints deadline as the 29th of August 2019. This means all claims need to have been submitted by this date in order to be processed.
According to the regulator this gives all claimants an adequate amount of time to submit their claims, for them to be processed and to bring the process to a conclusion. Naturally the banks had tried to make this much sooner but the regulator set the time frame to ensure a fair conclusion to PPI repayments claims.

Q. Is there a particular issue for women?
A. The regulator, the FCA, says that men are more likely to have bought PPI, but also more likely to have complained. Women in the UK are less likely than men to complain (the FCA says this is due to slightly lower financial knowledge and familiarity).
The FCA says that its publicity campaign will be effective (it’s already been tested on women-only groups) and it will re-test the publicity.

Q. Who can make a claim?
A. You can look to make a claim if:
- You were self employed. The vast majority of PPI policies won’t pay out if you’re self employed or on a fixed-term contract and you lose your job/work.
- You had medical problems you weren’t asked about. PPI policies rarely pay out for ‘pre-existing medical conditions’ — illnesses you’d suffered from before you took out the policy.
- You weren’t told about exclusions. In many cases, policyholders weren’t told that stress, pregnancy or back problems weren’t covered.
- You were retired or over 65 or older at the time. If you were retired you wouldn’t be able to claim on the policy in the first place and if you were aged over 65 or 70 (even if you were still in work) you might not have been covered as most policies have an upper age limit.
